An innovative, exciting, fresh new type of comic convention that combines; art, tech, workshops, gaming, cosplay, fashion, writing, creativity pitches for funding, film, VR, and more. We feature industry professionals and aspiring new artists and creators. Artists and dreamers join us who are looking for a break and the chance to connect, learn and grow. We bring a wide variety of offerings under one roof so that our audience and participants have the chance to explore the possibilities of entrepreneurial creativity and production.
Our event provides a supportive climate for our multifaceted, art, tech-media, learning, and networking experience that showcases the talents of underrepresented groups such as professionals of color, and women. We provide a positive atmosphere which fosters creativity and innovation, encouraging the free flow of ideas and exchanges through respectful, trusting, and caring communication during the two-day conference. AfroComicCon is positive and inclusive, unlike the mainstream con’s which have been known to be places of exclusion for certain groups. The reward for attendees, especially for children, comes through experiencing images, and stories featuring characters that they can identify with. This can have a positive effect on their success in school and careers.
