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.
