Con or Bust

Connecting creatives and fans of color with community.

What we do

For many, the costs of participating in industry events are barriers. We help remove them.

Dream Foundry’s Con or Bust program makes direct cash grants to assist with travel, food, registration, and other expenses associated with attending industry events. If you’re a creator or fan of color with an opportunity you can’t afford, reach out! We also collect donated hotel and airline vouchers, convention memberships, and other non-cash items that could support you.

If you have items or resources you’d like to donate to support this program, we want to hear from you, too!
