Diversity Comic Con
October 11, 2018 at 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
FIT will host Diversity Comic Con as the culminating event of Civility Week, October 8–11, featuring Artists’ Alley, panel discussions, portfolio reviews, and a cosplay pageant.
While the medium of comic books has been around for almost a century, the visibility and participation of minorities have been sorely lacking. But times are changing, and the causes and visibility of multicultural arts and stories are more crucial than ever.
More and more, the lines between print and screen media are blurring and merging as stories that were once the domain of comic books become the movies and television shows of today. Comic books are the beginning of visual storytelling.
Diversity Comic Con gives students an opportunity to be exposed to careers that are truly multidisciplinary while providing a venue to showcase their work to publishers, professionals, and the general public. This event gives them an invaluable experience and will widen their horizons.
This event is fully sponsored by a grant from the President’s Diversity Council.
This event is free to FIT students, faculty, and staff; for general public admission, please click here.
