Hi, I will be attending the BOS Convention in Winchester this autumn. I hope some of you are too!

EDIT: dang, I've had an operation scheduled for the day before the convention so I will not be able to go :( I hope those who go have a great time :)

Conventions in Europe

Postby Alexorigami » October 21st, 2011, 12:46 pm

I would LOVE a list of upcoming conventions in Europe (preferably near Romania, France and Germany are OK too).Also, they should be in a language that I can understand(no Romanian conventions, but English is OK and maybe German too). I knew about Ultimate Origami Convention since August, but I thought my parents wouldn't take me there. So I did not tell them about this. Until today, when I showed mom the schedule, and she said that she would have taken me there, but it's too late! But she said that she will take me to a convention every year, but only if it's in Europe. So, please help me!
As a general question, if a convention has international guests, what language is the convention in?

@Alexorigami

There are 2 conventions in Germany:

Origami Deutschland in Schwäbisch Gmünd 11th - 13th May 2012
http://papierfalten.de/index_en.htm
than click on "Germany" for more information

I went there this year. There were a few international guests (additionally to the invited guests). The main language definitely was German. There were a lot of people happy to translate spontaneously (announcements, workshops, autograph requests,...) and people made an effort to speak English when sitting together with a non-German-speaking folder.

there is another one close to Munich as well:
http://origami-treffen.de/
in Freising 25th - 27th May 2012
and they seem to have a second meeting in Bad Blankenburg 28th - 30th September 2012 as well.

@Alexorigami

From 8 to 11 december will take place the italian convention
Info here:

http://www.origami-cdo.it/cdo/convegno/conv11en.htm

The main language is italian of course but there are many people from other countries and you can easily speak in english with most of them. The main events (annuncements, workshops...) are translated.

Hope to see you there

Thank you both, jeko and fi-ori! I already knew about the one in Italy, but from what I read on their site, you need to be member of an association to participate. I am not, because ADOR (Asociatia De Origami Romania) only accepts members who are 18 or older, because of law.
About the ones in Germany: I have my Theses in may, so I am not sure. But maybe I'll go to the second one.
Other ideas, anyone?

The best place to look for conventions in India is the Origami Mitra site.

I think they had one in Pune this weekend.
