Comics-in-Residence Programme

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

CUNE offers a 1-month residency at HIAP in 2018. The residency will be arranged in September (30.8.–30.9.) in conjuction with Helsinki Comics Festival, and will be open to all European artists instead of only Nordic-Baltic applicants.

CUNE CiR 2018 is organised by Finnish Comics Society, in collaboration with HIAP.
