NAICCON (Nairobi Comic Convention) is behind East Africa's biggest comic convention and our latest Cultural Heritage Seed Fund grantee! In the past, NAICCON has successfully held 6 events with over 6,000 enthusiastic artists, illustrators, comic book lovers, animation artists, youtubers, cosplayers, gamers and movie lovers being in attendance.
This year NAICCON & Pro Series gaming have come together to put on NAICCON2019, an incredible pop culture experience that will take place on 24th and 25th August at the Sarit Centre in Westlands.
Attendees can expect exhibits from local and international comic book and animation artists, a world-class eSports tournament, retro games, pop culture workshops, panels. The experience-led event will also present the opportunity to take part in different competitions. Ultimately, the NAICCON Cosplay Competition will crown the event.
