CONvergence would like to apologize to all who felt hurt, offended, or triggered by the guerrilla Game of Thrones reenactment (AKA the “Shame Walk”) that occurred during the evenings of July 3rd and 4th, 2015. While the performers were not violating any existing law or policy concerning costuming or performance in convention spaces, we recognize that many found the reenactment in poor taste, hurtful, and in opposition to the spirit of our Safe Space and Costumes Are Not Consent ideals.

We would like to clarify that this guerrilla reenactment was not planned or sponsored by the convention. We are aware that a video was reblogged on CONvergence’s Tumblr account. This occurred because the individual who posted the video tagged it with the #CVG2015 hashtag; as a result, it was reblogged on our tumblr, as is virtually everything on the official hashtag provided it does not violate current CONvergence policy and isn’t of a personal nature.

The safety and comfort of our membership is a high priority for the Convergence Events Board of Directors, CONvergence Convention Committee, and volunteer staff. Accordingly, we are discussing potential policy changes to minimize future incidents without restricting the creativity and fun that make CONvergence special. If you have questions, suggestions, or feedback regarding this process, please do not hesitate to contact the CONvergence Board of Directors at directors@convergenceevents.org.
