This year Alliance Française Dublin and Illustrators Ireland are celebrating 5 years of partnership in presenting the Fête de l’Illustration & de la Bande Dessinée. Our mutual goal has been to bring together French and Irish talent to showcase the growing platform of comics, graphic novels and narrative art. With the French reputation for outstanding visual language, and the Irish history of storytelling, this blending of talents is sure to result in a festival of exciting international comics work.
From the 14th to 18th May, the French Library will host a series of events including a meeting with leading cartoonists Jacques Ferrandez and Eoin Coveney, live reading performances, a film adaptation of the legendary comic strip Bécassine, a children’s creative workshop, a pop-up book fair, and an exhibition! Admission free for all events but booking is essential.
