Leicester MA, Becker College, April 27th, 2019. Calmer Con is an authentic Comic Book & Pop Culture convention modified to be more Sensory Friendly for neurodiverse individuals, like those with Autism or ADHD, and anyone else who has sensory processing concerns. The goal is to lessen the chance of attendees becoming over stimulated while enjoying the event with their families.
* There will be two separate, four hour blocks to allow the venue to maintain a sensory friendly environment while giving twice as many people the chance to attend.
* Calmer Con includes many of the activities found at standard comic book conventions, such as: comic book & toy vendors, all presented in a way that helps control overcrowding and noise levels.
- interactions with superhero and science fiction characters
- comic book creators, contests and giveaways
- It also includes many activities not typically found at other conventions, such as an art area
- Jedi Training, storytelling seminars, face painting, Superhero Academy
- Sensory Reduced quiet area specifically to allow overwhelmed attendees the opportunity to relax and reset before rejoining the fun.
