The ECBACC Philly e-Convention
Promoting Literacy and Creativity
The ECBACC Philly e-Convention, scheduled for Saturday, July 11th / 11a.m. – 5p.m., is a day-long mini comic book convention that focuses on education, storytelling, literacy and arts. As we have had to postpone our 19th annual event, which was scheduled for Saturday, May 16, 2020, we are now hosting our first e-Convention as an event continuity place-holder. Hosted on our media platforms, The ECBACC Philly e-Convention will consist of all-day (Saturday, July 11th / 11a.m. – 5p.m.) online workshops, discussions, interviews, live-chats, panels, inter-active postings, facilitated by select industry professionals (Artists, Storytellers, Writers, Publishers, Cosplayers, et al), lasting for 1hr. – 1.5hrs. each. The workshops are complemented by film screenings and FB posts (both pre-posts and live posts)… Assorted previous convention guests (Vendors and Exhibitors), and industry professionals will be invited to participate on their own platforms if they so choose.
