THE PROJECTS: experimental art + comics festival in Portland. A new era for comics art: 3 days of workshops, exhibitions, screenings and collaborative projects with artists from around the world.
Oct. 19-21, IPRC (and other venues), Portland, OR
THE PROJECTS brings together experimental artists from comics, animation, and other narrative arts for a free three-day festival of workshops, exhibitions, panels, performances, projections, collaborative projects, and intensive creative mayhem! Guest artists each have a small space to curate however they please and visitors are invited to join in the fray. The festival is oriented toward creative process, idiosyncratic expression and inspiration, leaving behind the festival model of comics as commerce. Gone are the tables and the sales pitch – instead, a party!
