LICAF 2022 Puts Out A Call For Exhibitors

Show Off Your Work At LICAF

In 2022, The Lakes International Comic Art Festival is moving its location and they have just put out a call for exhibitors for the show this coming October …

Here’s the announcement about the location change from John Freeman at the show from last year too:

We’re excited to announce a dynamic, year-round programme of international comic art activity, and a new location for our annual Festival in October 2022, in Bowness-on-Windermere, within the heart of the Lake District National Park.

We’re planning to offering a re-energised format for the Festival, and we’re on a mission to use comic art to change the world!

The dates for the Festival in Bowness-on-Windermere will be Friday 14th – Sunday 16th October 2022, supported by major partners who include Arts Council England, the Lake District National Park Authority, South Lakeland District Council and Lancaster University.

Since its inception in 2013, the annual Festival has been held in Kendal, but for its tenth year, the core of the Festival will take over multiple venues within Bowness-on-Windermere, on the east banks of Lake Windermere.

The new Festival will bring the best artists and creators to the Lake District and explore the potential and power of comics as a force for good and creative endeavour, in the UK, and through continued international partnerships with organisations such as Comic Art Europe, and many others.

Hosting a comic art Festival in Bowness-on-Windermere presents an incredible opportunity to bring the wonder of comics to new audiences within an iconic, world-heritage landscape.

“This isn’t about moving the existing Festival from Kendal to Bowness-on-Windermere, this is about re-imagining the Festival for a new era,” says our Festival Director, Julie Tait. “The world of comics is continually changing, and we want to reflect this in a new Festival that unlocks the power of comics to change the world.

“We are already looking forward to welcoming our regular Festival visitors and new audiences to LICAF 2022.”

Lakes Arts Festivals will continue to run comic art activity in many other cities and towns throughout the UK, including Kendal, along with an extensive international programme.

We look forward to seeing you next year!

All the best,

John Freeman
