In 2017, Galway had its first international cartoon festival. In 2018 we’re expanding greatly, to bring you a big selection of exhibitions, workshops and many other entertaining cartoon-related events.
This year we focus on 11/11 – one hundred years to the day since the “Great War” of 1914-18 came to an end.
- An international open cartoon exhibition
- A Franco-Belgian conference on cartooning during WW1
- A solo career retrospective by a major Irish cartoonist
- A presentation of comic art set to music, in a restaurant
- Perhaps more!
Look out for more details soon – or get in touch if you’d like to play a part.
We’re planning a range of other workshops, including one on creating comics for schoolchildren. Check back soon for more information.
We’re inviting a number of speakers, from cartoonists to historians, to give their take on the events of the period. Stay tuned!
