ACAF – 20&21/2/2016

If I told you there was going to be a professional-development style convention on comic creation, and it was going to be held in Canberra, would you believe me?

When I found out that the Australian Comic Arts Festival was going to be held in Canberra on 20-21 February, I was (more than a little bit) pleased and surprised.

Rumours of the festival have been circulating for months, and the ‘expressions of interest’ mailing list has been rather quiet; but when I logged into the ACAF website today, there were more details about all the Saturday workshops, as well as artist alley table prices and Sunday market day general admission prices.

The way the festival works is this:
On Saturday, workshops will be held on topics ranging from design and print production, colour, panel composition, libraries, and retail.
– you just need to book through the site and pay for the workshops you attend.
Most of the workshops are $30, though some are cheaper, and there is one free workshop.

On Sunday, the festival will become a ‘Market Day’ from 10am-4pm, with a traditional ‘Artists Alley’.
General Admission is $15/adult: Buy tickets here.
Artist Alley tables are $50 (including admission for two): Details and booking details here.

Sadly, details about some of the workshop topics have not been updated yet (but I’m sure they will go up soon).

Lastly, ACAF is hosting a Networking Drinks and Book Launch. At the time of writing this post, there are not yet any details about which book/s will be lauched, so keep checking the ACAF site for updates.

Only 36 sleeps to go!

Too soon…

So, the Wig and Pen is not open on Sundays in their new venue. Boo.

Following discussion on Twitter, we’ve decided to keep the interim venue as the default Monthly meetup venue.

Next meetup is Sunday 5 April – Easter Sunday.

If you haven’t had enough chocolate, or if you are in the mood for a non-chocolate beverage, then come by Max Brenner Nishi from 2pm.

See you there!
