CUNE Comics-in-Residence Programme

CUNE Comics-in-Residence Programme gives comic artists and other professionals a chance to explore the culture, people and local comics scene of their neighbouring European countries. Through individual projects and collaborations with local comics actives, the artists can form new professional and personal ties and exchange essential know-how.

In Helsinki the artists will work with the Finnish Comics Society and the residencies will focus on producing new comics art. The FCS hopes to host artists whose projects challenge the comic book format and create out-of-the-box exhibitions for the Helsinki Comics Center’s gallery. The FCS is also interested in workshops that connect comics with new audience groups.

The programme is organised by the Finnish Comics Society and The Estonian Comics Society in collaboration with HIAP. The programme is supported by Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme and Eesti Kultuurkapital.
