Sneak Peek: Enabler Swag for 2015!

For those who don’t know, Enablers are what we call our VIPs: the attendees who donate a little extra to help make Intervention even awesomer every year! In return for their generosity, Enablers get cool bonuses at con like special shirts, artwork, badge holders, and invites to exclusive parties and events.

Our special items are designed and created by artists just like our attendees — and we finally have a look at the Tier 1 and Tier 2 goods!

Among the Tier 1 perks is a special 3D printed badge holder designed by Emma Lysyk of Em2a Studios. (Re)Generation Who attendees may remember Emma as the creator of the limited-edition jelly baby charms our (Re)Gen VIPs received.

At Tier 2, our Enablers also receive a special exclusive art print. This year’s print is by artist Ginger Hoesly, whose Doctor Who art you may have seen around Tumblr, at SDCC, or in the gallery during last year’s world tour.

Incidentally, this art is a coloured version of the art that will be featured on this year’s con T-shirts.

While the higher tiers have sold out, there’s still time to add to your Intervention membership at Tier 1 or 2. Check out what we’ve got!

Our Children’s Programming is organized by art teacher Corinne Simmers and will will be comprised of panels and workshops where parents and kids can work on creative projects together.

Art Supplies, Games, and other materials will be available during the panels, no need to bring your own (unless you’d like to).

Children’s Programming for Intervention 6

Overall Theme for this year: Spy Camp

Friday Night:

Welcome to Spy Camp!
Calling all secret agent wannabes. There will be a secret meeting held this evening for you spy enthusiasts.

Friday evening will be the kick off to our spy filled weekend. Children will receive their special spy packet, name, and learn our sacred oath.

Saturday:
10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.- Mastering the Art of Disguise.

We will be experimenting with our looks and trying out new disguises to learn the way of the spy. We will try our hand at paper mache masks, felt mustaches, maybe even some face painting. Anything that can boost our spy persona.

1:00-2:00 – Out for Lunch
Becoming a spy sure works up an appetite.

2:00-5:00 p.m.- Spy Training

Now it is time to get down to the nitty-gritty. This what being a spy is all about!

During this time we will learn how to decode secret messages with our decoders, practice the art of interrogation, learn how to read fingerprints, and try some spy experiments.

5:00-6:00p.m.- Field Training

Now that we put our brains to work it is time to workout our muscles and nimbleness.

This event we will have a “lazer” maze challenge, “bomb” defusing session, and a little bit of target practice.

Sunday
9-12 (possibly longer)

Big Caper Day

Today we put all of our training to a test as something has gone awry and they need our expertise in solving the crime.

This will be a scavenger hunt that will spread out through the convention. It will use some of the skills the children learned from Friday and Saturday so we encourage you to participate as much as possible! Feel free to have the kids dress all in black this day too so that they can get into their spy role.

In addition we will have a special Doctor Who themed mystery challenge as well.
