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.
- “A Peace To End All Peace” – our Armistice Centenary exhibition
- “Cartoons of the World” – an exhibition of contemporary satire with some of the world’s best cartoonists
- Solo career retrospective by major Irish cartoonist (to be announced…)
- The 3D Cartoons of Stephen Dee – an exhibition of comic sculptures
- Humor & Vine – a French exhibition of hedonistic wine-themed cartoons, on tour in Galway French restaurants
- Live Cartoon Art Event by leading Polish artist Maria Apoleika
- Cartoon Workshop for Schools
- The Cartoon Trail
- Caricature Sessions
