What Creator Con
Is All About
What is Creator Con?
For the Community
Students & Professionals
What makes Creator Con unique is that our annual festival is driven by highschool & college students to create a positive atmosphere of bridging art & technology industries to our surrounding communities. Our interactive festival provides a collaborative showcase of creative talents spanning from Maryland to California.
2017 Creator Con is a grass-roots interactive media festival that provides a down-to-earth, positive celebration for communities to learn, create, collaborate and become inspired to pursue their passions towards careers in the arts, computer science, gaming, interactive media and technology industries.
Our 3rd Annual Creator Con hosts art & gaming competitions, special guest presentations, designer challenges, workshops, panels, kidzone, live music, food trucks, vendors, and interactive hands-on demos.
In addition to panels & demonstrations, Creator Con showcases over 150 artists & developers from the comic book and gaming industries in a comic-con setting to allow attendees direct access to walk-up and meet all of the amazing artists, creators and developers.
2016 Creator Con
Creator Con was built from the ground-up to focus on community and youth development, which creates a festival unlike any other con or expo. Over the past few years, we have had an enormous amount of positive support which has allowed this student-designed festival to grow into this year's 2017 Creator Con. With assistance from industry professionals, students began creating their our festival back in December 2013, known as Blakescape. We have matured since our first interactive festival in 2013, and have successfully increased our attendance in 2016 by 471%. Our focus each year is to provide a more interactive, enhanced experience for all our attendees to learn from and be inspired by.
