AVCon began in 2002 as a joint convention supported by volunteers from the University of South Australia’s Adelaide Japanese Animation Society (AJAS) and the Adelaide University Video Gamers Association (AUVGA). Originally known as the A/V Connection, the event was held annually at the University of Adelaide. After four successful annual conventions, Team AVCon Incorporated was created.
Team AVCon is a not-for-profit charity working to advance culture by creating events and a platform to promote anime, video games and Japanese culture. We use our forum and events to collaborate and uplift South-Australian and Australian content creators, small businesses, and organisations interested in anime, video games, and Japanese culture. Together, we strive to create an accessible and safe environment for nerds everywhere to express their interests and love of fandom.
