Event description

Description

The Newark Culture Con is a free and public celebration of diversity, representation, and inclusion in the comics industry. It is essentially a comic con with all the traditional fixings (cosplay, vendors, panel discussions, artists on-site, etc.) but with an emphasis on diversity, representation, and inclusion in the arts, especially in the comic book space and all related genres, both in front of and behind the camera.


Culture Con is also an official event of the annual Rutgers Day celebration, which includes festivities throughout the state of New Jersey and brings together Rutgers alumni, faculty, staff, students, and affiliates from all over the Northeast Region and beyond. It’s a day that consists of performances, activities, and exhibits, and draws an average of 4,000 guests to the Newark celebration alone. This celebration is also free and open to the public.



Culture Con will be held on Saturday April 27, 2019 in our newly opened arts and cultural space, Express Newark, which is housed in the recently renovated and iconic Hahne & Co. Building in downtown Newark and across from the historic Robert Treat Hotel as well as the New Jersey Performing Arts Center.
