Story-telling is as old as humans. In fact, it might be one of the things that helped us become humans. NerdCon: Stories is here to honor that institution with a diverse gathering of story tellers. Podcasters, novelists, cartoonists, musicians, poets, and more will gather in Minneapolis for an exceptional celebration.

NerdCon: Stories will take place on October 9 & 10, 2015 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. And it will be incredible.

Music: Fifty-One Degrees by Michael Aranda: https://michaelaranda.bandcamp.com/track/fifty-one-degrees
From the moment we could speak we've been telling each other stories. And since then, our stories have defined and created us. Every human society that wants to behave differently first has to change the stories they tell. The story was, and remains, the key to the marvel of human progress. Stories in songs, in books, on the stage, around the campfire. Stories drove the evolution of human language and fostered the massive burst of creation that accompanied it. We celebrate our culture all the time, but we don't do a great job of just praising the institution of the story. On October 9th and 10th, 2015 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, a diverse group of storytellers will be coming together at the Minneapolis Convention Center to do just that. We'll be listening, performing, mashing media, and discussing how we face everything from death to race in our stories. We'll be welcoming musicians, podcasters, radio hosts, poets, performers, game designers, and authors of every genre we could think of. We are made of stories. Come join us in celebrating them at NerdCon: Stories.
