About This Convention
Indy PopCon is a popular culture convention that will be coming to downtown Indianapolis in late May of 2014. Formed by a group of (mostly) Hoosiers with over 50 years of con experience, PopCon was created to give the Midwest a new kind of convention. Many popular conventions are hyper-focused and specific to certain genres. To get the most out of those conventions, you are likely already embedded within those specific cultures.

We’re a little bit different. Our goals for Indy PopCon are two-fold:

1. Make a Convention Accessible to All

Rather than specialize in one form of pop culture or another, we are dedicating resources to bringing in all aspects of popular culture. Our hope is that those who attend for one or two of our themes will discover new geeky, nerdy, and interesting hobbies and fun that they otherwise may not have been exposed to.

2. Make a Convention About YOU!

The landscape of popular culture is changing. Previously, one would need to be discovered in order to make a career in comics, art, entertainment, movies, and gaming. But with the success of funding platforms like Kickstarter and self-publishing platforms like YouTube, you are in control. You can choose what you want to publish, and what you like. You have the power to shape our popular culture!

We will invite the trail-blazers of this new pop culture phenomenon. YouTube stars, podcasters, web comic artists, webmasters, and more will be invited to share and grow their craft and also to help guide and train the next generation. Panels and workshops will be made available for those who have a dream and the passion to create, but just need a little guidance. Our hope is that Indy PopCon 2015 will feature new internet superstars who attended PopCon 2014!
