WHAT IS EAGLE-CON?
Eagle-Con is a three-day convention that brings together science fiction, fantasy, comic books, and superheroes, as well as insider views of these highly creative genres. Nested on the campus of Cal State LA, home of the Golden Eagles, Eagle-Con explores issues of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, identity, and representation in science fiction and fantasy across media while also celebrating the boundless imaginations of artists and writers that turn ordinary humans into lifelong devotees of these genres. With generous support from our founding sponsor, the Art Directors Guild, Eagle-Con is an event where people from all walks of life can come together to learn, explore, and grow in an inclusive atmosphere that celebrates diverse voices and visions.
Eagle-Con at Cal State LA is a student-centered, community-welcoming event that celebrates science fiction and fantasy across media. Eagle-Con’s mission is three-fold:
Education: To educate the students of Cal State LA and members of the Greater Los Angeles community about the history, impact, and continued necessity of the contributions of women, people of color, the LGBTQIA-identified, the differently-abled, and the variously-aged to the science fiction and fantasy genres; and to explore diverse identity representations and expressions within these genres while creating spaces for new voices, creators, and small and independent publishers and producers of the same.
Professionalization: To provide opportunities for students to learn about these genres from artists, writers, and professionals working in southern California’s entertainment industries, network with these professionals, and imagine how they might one day join their ranks.
Fun: To celebrate science fiction and fantasy through entertaining events involving art, fashion, storytelling, games, screenings, and special presentations.
