The Downeast Conference of 529, also known as the First Damariscottan Summit or simply the Downeast Conference, was a gathering of micronationalists hosted by the Maritime Republic of The Damariscotta in conjunction with MicroWiki@Discord, the event took place on 26 June 2021 and saw at least thirty four nations attending.
Following the COVID-19 Pandemic and over a year of being mainly indoors, many micronations have faced issues inactivity and writers block facing many leaders and their nations, the idea of a digital summit to introduce ideas to other nations to assist in the inactivity crises. Otto Gillespie Birch proposed the idea of a summit to a few nations with some showing interest, those being Kingdom of Atlia, People's Republic of Adonia and the Kingdom of Aspen. Following months of planning Otto Gillespie Birch approached MicroWiki@Discord asking to advertise the summit. However Otto Gillespie Birch was then asked if it could be possible to hold the summit on the Microwiki Discord, which he happily agreed to.
The Conference was held on 26 June 2021, from 10 am to 1 pm EST, the event had four sections planned, with those being, an opening speech by Otto Gillespie Birch, then an introductory period where participants can introduce themselves to each other. After that a list of ideas for nations to do gathered by The Damariscottan delegation is to be unveiled, finally a period of questions and general conversation will be held with the event expected to be ending around 1 pm EST.
