Community

The Des Moines Science Fiction & Fantasy Society is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that promotes literacy, Science and the arts. We connect with the community in many ways and invite you to join in.

Mission Statement
To inspire individuals and communities to READ, IMAGINE AND THINK; creating a better world through education and support of literacy, science and the arts.

DemiCon Lite
This is our education program for DMSFFS.  We hold 10 to 14 events a year. All of them hold an educational value with workshops, live music, outreach, or panels.  We try to keep all activities are free. These are open to all and are held around Des Moines, connecting cities, and local libraries.

Charity Work
DMSFFS works with the community throughout the year with different fundraisers and support of local groups.

Some of the examples:

  • We choose a charity for DemiCon: Des Moines Annual Science Fiction, Fantasy and Gaming Convention each year. The convention allows DMSFFS to raise funds for the chosen charity with donations and a charity auction.
  • Participates as a group in certain walks.
  • Used our creative abilities to enter pieces of art for local charities.

Connections
DMSFFS encourages connections with other local groups and libraries. Co-hosting events with groups, DemiCon Lite, having fan tables at DemiCon, and encouraging members to connect with other groups is a major part of how DMSFFS interacts with others.
