On Thursday, October 11, 2018, Comics Experience Creators Workshop member Ramon Gil will launch the very first Diversity Comic Con at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT)! The con will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Great Hall of FIT’s Conference Center.
Ramon is a professor at the school, who also serves as Art Director for Pronto Comics, and is an independent comics creator in his own right. While Ramon has participated in and helped organize multiple comics-related events throughout his career, Diversity Comic Con will be his first time organizing an event specifically combining his love of comics with his commitment to increased visibility for underrepresented groups within the industry.
Admission to Diversity Comic Con is free, but reservations are required! Visit the convention website for details and tickets.
Congrats to Ramon and collaborators for creating, organizing, and launching this event!
