CUNE Comics-in-Residence Programme

CUNE Comics-in-Residence Programme (CUNE CiR) gives comic artists and other professionals a chance to explore the culture, the people and the local comics scene of neighbouring countries. Through individual projects and collaboration with local comics actives, the artists can form new professional and personal ties and exchange essential know-how.

CUNE CiR is aimed at comic artists and professionals from Northern Europe.

Application to CUNE Comics-in-Residencies in 2021 is now open.

In 2021, the programme is accepting applications from comic artists and professionals living in SwedenEstonia, LatviaLithuaniaNorwayDenmark and Iceland.

There are two residency periods available in Helsinki, both taking place 19th August–16th September, 2021.
