Greetings And Introductions



Good Day To You!

We have been expecting you. Welcome to our humble convention space here on Subgenres.net. Allow us to introduce ourselves, we are The Society for the Ethical Treatment of Kraken. The Society, better known as SETK, is a small group of Steampunks from Winnipeg, Manitoba. We may be small in number, but we have a great amount of spirit. Every year we hold our convention The Society for the Ethical Treatment of Kraken's Tea and Bazaar for fellow Steampunk enthusiasts on the second weekend of June.

You can find us on Facebook at:



This year A Tea In The Clouds is our online version of what we typically offer at our in-person events and yearly convention. It is due to the worldwide plague that we must use the greatest caution, think of our dear guests and friends in Steam, and remain here online until the world becomes safe for gatherings once more. 

We miss seeing all of you in person, but this is the next best thing. It is a joyous wonder this internets thing that allows us to still celebrate the fantastic universe of Steampunk together through circuits, wires, and on the wings of the invisible beast called the WiFi. Our greatest desire is to have Steampunkers from around the world join us here on June 12th, 2021 for some good, honest, steamy shenanigans. It is a way of spending time together so that all of us can feel a little less like the "only Steampunk in town". 

Please check in frequently to catch up on all the updates and news we hope to share in the coming months. We have so many Steampunky activities in store for our guests on June 12th. It is our goal to represent the many varied subgenres of Steampunk with our audience. Pirates, Burlesque, Dieselpunk, Cyberpunk, Victorian, Airships, and much more. The universe of Steampunk is rich and diverse, there is something for everyone in this genre. 

Please join us on the 12th of June!

We look forward to enjoying the day with all of you.

Steampunkin' Around The World:
Showcase Map

To All The Steampunks of the World:

Groups, Artists, Authors, Inventors, Costumers....

We will be creating a Steampunkin' Around The World: Showcase Map. Discover here on our site a special page with a world map that will showcase all the awesome kindred spirits in punk out there around the world.

We invite Steampunk artists, writers, groups, costumers, inventors, kindred spirits, to send us a short video that we can place on the world map. It can be made on a smart phone or more advanced, we are not picky. Just introduce yourselves to us and the world. The video should be relatively short, but we want to know about your group, or you, the place you are from, and what Steampunk means to you.

An icon of your town, city, place will be put on the map with a link that when visitors to our site and our convention tap on it, your video will appear. Hopefully by June 12th we will have a map full of Steamy friends. We look so forward to seeing all of you.

Please send your submission to:


Thank you so very much in advance.
