European Comics Festival in Bucharest

EUNIC Romania

The European Comics Festival in Bucharest has played since its first edition in 2010 a major role in promoting multilingualism, European cultural diversity and in supporting the emerging creative industries in Romania. In the 2017 edition of the Festival, titled “European Comics Festival in Bucharest – communicating European values via Comics”, EUNIC Romania will focus on the topic of social inclusion through arts and culture as well as multilingualism in Romania. Together with local comic artists, NGOs and local stakeholders such as the City Hall, EUNIC Romania developed a series of activities including an exhibition of European and Romanian comic strips and graphic novels used by local NGOs working in the field of social inclusion to communicate tolerance towards minority groups (e.g. Roma); workshops with school children in two schools connected with Romanian NGOs with the idea of the pupils creating stories on street children and education as well as on Roma community and community development; and other follow-up activities. The project will involve collaboration with EUNIC clusters in Moldova and Brussels.
