This year’s East London Comics Art Festival (ELCAF) will take place over three days for the first time, and will boast an identity created by ELCAF 2016 artist-in-residence Jean Jullien.
Taking place from 10 -12 June at the Round Chapel, School Rooms and MKII Gallery in Hackney, this is the Nobrow-run event’s fifth year, and previous editions have run for one or two days. The 2016 edition has expanded to “an entire season,” according to organisers, with satellite events including a workshop for Urban Village Fete and an exhibition at NOW Gallery by Margaux Carpentier for ELCAF, free drop-in workshops at Hackney Central and Dalston Libraries, masterclasses and a joint school programme at the House of Illustration.
The ELCAF Award has also been introduced to “recognise artists and publishers who are excelling in their fields.”
