Salonul European de Bandă Desenată

The European Comics Salon in Bucharest is a project of the EUNIC group, a col­lec­tive of local European cul­tural insti­tutes. Upon the sug­ges­tion of the Wallonia-Brussels Delegation, the Salon is organ­ised by the Czech Centre, the Hungarian Cultural Centre, the Wallonia-Brussels Delegation, the Goethe Institute, the French Institute, the Romanian Cultural Institute and the Institute of Camões, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the National Museum of Contemporary Art (MNAC), the asso­ci­a­tion Jumătatea plină (The Full Half), the Association of Romanian Comics Fans and the M. M. Europe pub­lish­ing house. To date, the salon has taken place twice (2010 and 2011). The salon puts on events geared towards a lay pub­lic, includ­ing work­shops (from screen-print­ing to web comics), pre­sen­ta­tions of car­toon films, books and comics, meet­ings with Romanian and inter­na­tional artists and pub­lish­ers, as well as com­pe­ti­tions. There is also a spe­cially equipped space avail­able for moti­vated ama­teur artists to show their own works.
