The 2014 theme will be cross-culturalism. What exactly is cross-culturalism?
Seems to me if you asked 100 people what cross-culturalism is you'd get 100+
answers. Maybe Arisia needs a better definition of the theme?

I actually like the idea of allowing "cross-culturalism" to remain ambiguous. It's one of those words that means different things to different people. We're a large group, and we all bring interesting perspectives along with us to the conversation of what cross-culturalism is. For Arisia to define "cross-culturalism" seems to impose meanings on the word that may/may not work for all people. But that's just my opinion. :D

I figured it meant that fandom has a lot of cultures, from gamers to Star Trek/Wars fans, to book lovers, to anime fans and beyond... We just have a lot of cultures.

I was thinking like how Alien is a cross of Sci-fi and horror if it meant that.

when i actually like This involving allowing "cross-culturalism" to be able to remain ambiguous. This has solitary associated with the individual words The idea means some other points in order to other people. We're the large group, AS WELL AS i almost all bring interesting perspectives AND us all on the conversation associated with what cross-culturalism is. pertaining to Arisia in order to define "cross-culturalism" seems to help impose meanings to the word The idea may/may not operate intended for all people.
