Who We Are

The Geek/Art CONfluence is a comic con focused on creativity, inclusion, and diversity in geek culture.

The Geek/Art CONfluence is enthusiastically dedicated to providing a diverse, inclusive experience—with a focus on increasing disability awareness within geek culture—in partnership with Syracuse University’s “Cripping” the Comic Con, aka CripCon.

We are committed to accessibility. Panel sessions will include A.I. captioning and some panels will have American Sign Language interpretation. Whenever possible, visual content will be accompanied by image descriptions.

Open to everyone, everywhere, free of charge.

Zoom for Panel Talks

The CON is all in-person this year, but you can also watch our panel talks on Zoom, for free. Use this link:

Expectations for Behavior at the CON

Be nice!

The point of the CON is to provide a friendly, positive, inclusive, geeky space for a day, for the benefit of people who have not had the chance to experience that kind of thing for a long time.

Harassment, insults, bigotry, and villainous behavior in general will not be tolerated. We may remove anyone who does not uphold this expectation through their speech or behavior.
