Let's do it again!

We want WMC8 to happen, but can't do it without you. Please help us by donating to the cause (any amount helps!) or by contributing your ideas, time or in-kind resources to see that it happens. Here's how you can help.


Weapons of Mass Creation Fest is a chance for us working class creatives to get together, talk shop, and make each other better at what we do.
