Join us for our first ever Comic Fest at Sulzer Regional Library! Local Chicago comic artists and creators will showcase their work at tables all over the ground floor of the library. Speak with creators, browse contemporary comics and zines, sign up for workshops, and attend panels where we talk comics, art careers and more!
Artists Alley will be set up in the Auditorium from 10am-4pm. Stop by tables of local creators to browse their work and engage with the artists.
Throughout the day, four one-hour workshops will take place in the Community Meeting Room.
We'll also be hosting a Panel in which Chicago area artists discuss what it's like working as a creative in comics. This will take place in YOUmedia at 1pm. Panelists include:
Comic Fest is a mini-grant project that's part of Elevate Your Voice, a summer initiative designed for teens to improve their lives, to take action and make a positive community difference in their communities as well to recognize a hero who has made a difference to them.
