Friends Draft

Founded in 2017 by two local cartoonists, the festival is growing every year with a bigger and better catalogue of exhibitions, workshops and events. The support of local volunteers, well-wishers and business has been vital to this growth and success, and we now introduce a simple way to show your support: Becoming a Friend.

By becoming a Friend of the Galway Cartoon Festival you can help support and develop one of the country’s top celebrations of humorous art. Benefits include official invitation to exclusive launches and events, inside news, and of course swag. It’s a great way to keep up with developments at the Galway Cartoon Festival, and also makes a lovely gift for a fun-loving friend or family member.

There are three membership levels:

  • Pencil Pal – €150
  • Ink Original – €250
  • Full Colour Friend – €500

Benefits for Friends include:

  • Invitations to all programme launches and opening receptions
  • Your name in the Festival catalogue
  • Free copy of the Festival catalogue
  • A free Festival T-shirt
  • A free A3 print of the Festival poster (Framed for Ink Original and Full Colour Friends)
  • An exclusive signed original cartoon (Full Colour Friends only)

Your support is vital to the ongoing success of the festival, the events we can offer and the artists we can bring.
