We received no less than 200 applications from 32 countries. It is a great success for the Comic Art Europe project’s first steps.
The jury is comprised of comic strip experts and representatives of the four cultural organisations participating in the Comic Art Europe project.
They will meet to assess all the applications and select five creators who will win packages which all include a 5,000€ grant and a two-week artist residency in one of the four 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 in 2022.
Results will be announced on March 8th.
One of Comic Art Europe’s goal is to research the impact of comics on literacy throughout workshops opened to different communities.
The new deadline for applications is April 9th!
We are keen to present to you each of the comics creatives who won one of the 5 artist residencies.
We are glad to announce the winners of our first Open Call!
