Comics Beyond

New paths for European comics artist careers.

The Comics Beyond project, which runs for 3 years, aims to explore different paths for European comic artists to develop and disseminate their activity at a European level, to fight against their precarious working situation and help them make a (better) living from their artistic activity.

Comics Beyond is supported by the European Commission as part of the Creative Europe - Cultural cooperation projects (small scale) program. Four comics professional structures from different countries are cooperating to make the project a reality: the Comic Art Museum - Brussels (Belgium), Amadora BD (Portugal), Rendez-vous BD Amiens (France) and COMICON Napoli (Italy), in partnership with Escola Joso (Spain), Art Bubble Festival (Denmark) and the Lakes International Comic Arts Festival (United-Kingdom).

Comics Beyond will take direct actions to foster the employability of European comics artists, providing the authors with various and different initiatives, resources and activities.

  • a training week in Amadora, Lissabon (open call until March 17) 
  • a call for projects on transdisciplinary comics projects
  • webinars and conferences
  • a database of transdisciplinary comics projects

Comics Beyond can be described as an experimental European comics incubator.
