Mysterium 2008 attendees, check your inboxes. The 2008 wrap-up survey has (finally) been released. If you attended Mysterium 2008 and did not receive an invitation to take the wrap-up survey, please contact web [at] mysterium [dot] net.
We haven’t forgotten about you guys, we promise! We’re putting the finishing touches on the survey and will have it out to you sometime this week, so keep your inboxes open. There will be another post here on the site once the survey has been sent out so that you know when to start checking your spam folder ;).
Can’t make it to this weekend’s Mysterium? It’s not too late to be a Paper Person!
Paper people is a Mysterium tradition where people who can’t make it sent pictures of themselves to be there in their place. There is usually a group picture taken with all of the paper people. You can still get yours in. Send your jpg to email@example.com by Friday AM!

Looking for someone to share a hotel room with? We now have a roommate matching system to help you find others who are looking to share a hotel room and split expenses to help make you trip more affordable and stress free. Visit our roomshare page HERE
We are trying something new this year for Presentations, by offering three different formats for groups & individuals to share their works with the community:
Display- Table space for displaying artwork, crafts or other creative efforts.
Small Group- For a small class, panel or smaller presentation.
Performance or Presentation- For larger presentation to all Mysterium attendees
Further details about each option, presentation rules and requirements, and registration, are available now on our Presentations Page HERE
Once again, we invite those D’niverse fans who can’t join us in the flesh to join us on paper. Please send your picture in jpg format, with an 8×10 print size, to firstname.lastname@example.org
Have we got some fun stuff planned for this year! Visit our Events Page for a preview!
PRIZES & MATERIALS
One of the things that makes Mysterium great is the amount of community involvement, and one way you can be involved – even if you aren’t able to attend Mysterium – is through the donation of prizes or materials.
If you create items that are directly related to the D’niverse (like Journey Cloths, or linking book replicas), or are thematically similar (like journals, or art of Age-like locations), we’d like to invite you to donate an item or two for prizes at Mysterium. In the past Mysterium has awarded prize winners journals, decorated cones, Journey Hand necklaces and more. Unique prizes are an inspiration to everyone!
Jet Blue has several specials to Boston right now, check them out!
We recommend that attendees NOT use American Airlines if at all possible, given their new $15 fee for a standard checked bag.
Manchester Ariport (MHT) is less than 50miles from the hotel, and there is a free shuttle that goes from the airport to the regional transit center near the hotel. Booking a flight to that airport may be cheaper!
