The Comics Lab have put the call out to creators to take part in a ‘Festival of Comics’ next March. Here are the details:

IGI (Illustrators Guild of Ireland) and The Comics Lab are joining forces with Alliance Française de Dublin to hold a ‘Festival of Comics’ on 2 – 3 Mar 2016. We’ll be sharing full programme details with you closer to the time, but for now, we want to invite you to take part in our Pop-Up Comics Fair, which will be taking place during the festival.

Why: The aim of the comics fair is to showcase indie Irish comics talent to a new audience. The Festival is open to members of the public, and we expect a sizeable contingent from the Alliance Francaise network, along with visiting French cartoonist Tito.

How it’s going to work: There will be no fee to take part, and no commission taken on sales. Rather than separate tables, vendors will share a couple of long benches. The fair will be happening alongside a number of other comics-related events. The fair will take place in The Liquor Rooms on the evening of Wed, 2 Mar. It may run for a second night on Thur, 3 Mar in the Alliance Francaise, but this is subject to confirmation.

What to sell: Why comics and zines of course! This can be existing or new work. We encourage you to use this as an opportunity to finally do that comic you’ve been meaning to do all year but haven’t. If you don’t have much time, make it small. Just make it.

How to book: Email us at thecomicslab@gmail.com and simply confirm that you would like to take part. While we hope to accommodate everyone who applies, we have a limited amount of space, so priority will be given to Illustrators Ireland, Comics Lab and Dublin Comic Jam members.
