Dalton Hero Con - 2019


About Hero Con

List of 3 items.

  • Mission

    In keeping with mission of The Dalton School, this event will promote both diversity and social justice advocacy in an inclusive, and entertaining, way.
  • Inception

    In the world of Comic Conventions, participants are encouraged to celebrate their diverse identities in connection with a variety of sources from literature, media, pop culture, gaming, music, etc.  As a result, these participants feel a strong sense of belonging to a community that is inclusive and safe. In recent years, Cons have also become a platform for activism by encouraging self-expression and conversations. Cons both embrace and inspire.  
  • Future Aspirations

    In its inaugural year, Dalton Hero Con offers six author/illustrator keynote panelists, seven activism organization booths, nine artists in the Artist Alley, more than 15 workshops/scheduled events and a pop-up bookstore with Books of Wonder.  -- All in a short time span of just 3 1/2 hours!

    Hero Con organizers will continue expand the offerings and make future Cons longer, bigger, and even more diverse!
