Zombie conference extends early-bird registration deadline

Are you obsessed with The Walking Dead? Do you think you could outlast The Horde? Come out for a two-day conference filled with practical advice and skill-building on how to survive a zombie apocalypse or any natural disaster, October 28 and 29 on the UWindsor campus.

The conference begins Friday night with an introductory keynote address by history professor David Bright of Niagara College entitled “I don’t think those rules apply anymore, do you? Rebuilding civilization after the Zombie Apocalypse.”

Saturday is filed with thought-provoking panel presentations and hands-on workshops in a range of disciplines, including:

  • introduction to self-defence techniques;
  • how to find food when there’s none left;
  • diagnosing the zombie bug;
  • emergency preparedness; and
  • how to create zombie make up.

The day ends with a free zombie walk and after-party featuring the local band, The Brandy Alexanders.

The cost is $10 for students and includes access to all the panels and workshops. While supplies last, registrants will also receive an emergency kit that includes some practical things to get them prepared. A free lunch will be provided to those who register by October 24.
