Announcement: Steampunk Hands Around the World 2017

Steampunk Hands Around the World is returning for another installment in February 2017 and this year, the participants will be tackling the subject:

Steampunk: Making Life Better

 

This is the Press Release, as released by the head organizer and benelovent dictator, the Airship Ambassador:

Steampunk Hands Around the World returns for it’s fourth year, continuing the celebration of the best that the global steampunk community has to offer.

The 2017 theme of the annual month long blogathon is “Making Life Better”. Each day from Wednesday, February 1st through Tuesday the 28th, contributors will share some of their favorite experiences of how steampunk made a difference.

Everyone, steampunks and non-steampunks alike, will be able to share in the information about who and what inspires us to keep exploring, expanding, and enhancing our community every day.

Tying all of these experiences together are people. People who share their ideas, who teach their skills, who step forward to make a difference in large ways and small. Each and every one of us has probably already made life better for someone and some time, and we may not even know it. Together, we create our community, and we bring steampunk to life, in all of its many variations. WE make a difference.

Steampunk Hands Around the World is just one of many opportunities during the year which brings people together, creating new connections and friendships. It is one of those events where we see into the whole of the community, and bring home those things and people who inspire us to do more and be more.

Each day, the master list of blog links will be updated at the Airship Ambassador blog site. Follow along on Twitter with the hashtags of #SteampunkHands and #SHaW , and on the official Facebook event page.

As many different languages are spoken around the world, it will be helpful to use a translation service to read each post in your own native language, such as Google. Language will not be a barrier in communication among us.

If you would like to participate directly, or would like more information, please contact Kevin Steil at Kevin@AirshipAmbassador.com

So, if you like to join, you are obviously very welcome! The more, the merrier!
