Our Events

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.

Exhibitions

  1. An international open cartoon exhibition
  2. A Franco-Belgian conference on cartooning during WW1
  3. A solo career retrospective by a major Irish cartoonist
  4. A presentation of comic art set to music, in a restaurant
  5. Perhaps more!

Look out for more details soon – or get in touch if you’d like to play a part.

Workshops

We’re planning a range of other workshops, including one on creating comics for schoolchildren. Check back soon for more information. 

Talks

We’re inviting a number of speakers, from cartoonists to historians, to give their take on the events of the period. Stay tuned!
