2022 was the inaugural year of The Urban Nerd Con. The three-day event was the idea of Roy Eavins, an HBCU sports broadcasting professional/ multimedia nerd who saw the need for a celebration of Black fans and professionals in the South.
Roy Eavins and a team of convention enthusiasts are excited to bring The Urban Nerd Con "home" to Atlanta for 2023. In the city known for its nerd culture, notable film locations, history-makers, and world-renowned creators, Atlanta was the obvious setting for year 2.
The theme for 2023 is Urban Futurism, which we define as "Reclaiming Our History. Redefining The Future.
Urban Nerd Con will feature:
Gaming tournaments throughout the weekend.
Panel: Learn industry tips and network with artists, animators, authors, producers, programmers, and creative professionals.
