    POC Programming Track

    The POC Programming team is continuing our work to support POCs at Big Bad Con through financial aid, a community dinner, and an industry meet and greet event. This year (2023) we’re also working with local gamers in India, South East Asia, and Latin America to bring more international POCs to the con!
