Our First Programme Announcements


Three-eyed raven is staring at you!

Three-eyed raven by Jenny Wiik, from the series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin.

To celebrate the opening of our call for programme participants we wanted to give you a first little teaser of a couple of programme items. If you have ideas of programme items you’d like to be part of, please go and sign up!

LGBT in Science Fiction – Cheryl Morgan, Dirk Weger & Suzanne van Rooyen
Cheryl Morgan, Suzanne van Rooyen and Dirk Weger discuss LGBT in science fiction and fantasy. This program item was so popular during Finncon 2014 that the room was packed and some couldn’t even get in, so we are hosting an updated rerun at Archipelacon!
“That’s not how it was in the book!” – Anna-Leena Harinen
Discussion about the differences and the reasons behind them between George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire and its television adaptation, the HBO series Game of Thrones. Anna-Leena has studied the adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire into Game of Thrones in her master’s thesis, and now continues to study the subject further in her PhD thesis.
Illustration magic – Jenny Wiik
Illustrator and writer Jenny Wiik talks about work methods and processes behind her fantasy and science fiction illustrations for her own writing and for texts by authors like Aliette de Bodard, Ken Liu, Elizabeth Bear, Maria Turtschaninoff and Archipelacon’s Guests of Honour.
What to watch – 2015 edition – Mikko Seppänen & Elisa Wiik
Our self-appointed experts give their opinions on new television series from the 2014–2015 season. So come hear their point of view and debate if series like The Flash, Constantine, The Strain, Forever or Penny Dreadful are worth watching!
