Comic Art Europe: New Project and Open Call for artists from all European countries (until February 10th, 2021)
Submit your art for a chance to win a 5,000€ grant, an artist residency, support for production and a tour of European festivals.
The Comic Art Europe Project features four of the leading European comics organisations: Lyon BD (France), The Lakes International Comic Art Festival (UK), Escola Joso, Centre de Còmic i Arts Visuals (Spain), The Belgian Comic Strip Center (Belgium) and its goal is to strengthen the comics sector in the EU by experimenting with collaborative working methods.
Comic Art Europe promotes the transnational mobility of artworks, workers and creators as a means to significantly upscale the work. It prefigures a European comics community capable of positioning creators and organisations at a European level thereby challenging the historical dominance of the American and Japanese giants.
The project will experiment with professional training (summer camp and residency pathways), creative assistance (grants and residencies), dissemination of results in Europe and outside Europe (European comic book catalogue, large-scale dissemination channels) and mediation around the transformational power of comics (in particular through literacy workshops with comics).
Comic Art Europe will enable the participating organisations to test new ways of working together, thus strengthening their skills and boosting their profile and longevity. The project partners constitute the base for a future network capable of bringing the sector together at a European level. This network will develop the capacities of its members, represent the sector at international trade fairs and markets, and consolidate a common culture built throughout this experimental project.
