- Comic Art Europe
Now into its second year, the Comic Art Europe project is preparing to launch a second call for « comics » projects, again the only constraint is the use of the comics medium and the respect of the theme: Living together.
Diversity enhances society. Learning about other cultures, being exposed to different values and influences is an enriching experience that broadens the mind and promotes tolerance and the appreciation of difference.
This year, Comic Art Europe is asking comics artists to reflect in their own way on "living together" in the modern world. Through true stories or fictional creations, comic book artists are invited to present projects that illustrate their interpretation of "living together" today.
- 5000€ grant + 2 weeks of residency + a tour in european festivals
5 projects will be selected by a jury comprising comic strip experts and representatives of each of the 5 cultural organisations participating in the Comic Art Europe project.
Each selected artist will be awarded a 5000 € grant and a two-week residency in one of the 4 partner cities of the project (Lyon in France, Brussels in Belgium, Barcelona in Spain and Kendal in England). The winning artists will also have the opportunity to present their work at festivals and events proposed by the project partners and in 2023. Authors will have from 15 October 2021 until 15 December 2021 to apply.
