• Archon, a venue for cosplayers and hobbyist

      Once again Cebu hosted Archon an annually held event around the Philippines. Archon is short for Anime, Role playing games, Comics, and Hobbies.

      ARCHon was established in July of 2004, the event was an idea from the Sacred Heart Jesuit- "Alternate Hobbies club" and is now the Sacred Heart School Ateneo De Cebu - AMTG (Anime Manga Trading cards Gaming brigade). ARCHON had its humble beginnings as a school activity that was open to the public and is now a developing convention that shows a wide array of popular hobbies for the youth such as:
      Cosplay, toy and collectible figure display, local artists demonstrating their work. E-sports and games help local hobbyist communities.

      During the ARCHon there are shops, food stalls, and games that everyone can enjoy. ARCHon is a place where participants can feel confident.

      ARCHon’s vision is to help build the creative hobbyist industry across the Philippines by supporting the hobbies and creating a sustainable hub that gives back to the community through talks, workshops, mini-events and the amalgamation of all the hobbies into one I've annual event.

      The goal of the convention is to be an open venue for people to express themselves and showcase their world-class talent, creativity, and innovation in celebration of their hobbies. To inspire change they donate the proceeds of the event to the Sacred Heart School Ateneo De Cebu Blue Plate Project, which aims to help fight against malnutrition among public elementary students through daily feeding programs, as well as other non-profit organizations that the community can actively support.

      This gives everyone a chance to give back and raise funds for their charity and outreach activities through their hobbies and inclinations because that small step in wanting to make a difference can go a long way to paving the way for the growth of the hobbyist industry in the country.
