The Toronto Comic Arts Festival takes place this weekend, but as regulars know, it’s really more of a whole week of comics related events and exhibits. While the TCAf site has a perfectly awesome site listing all the events, just in case you are too lazy to click on the link, I’ve presented a digest version below.
The programming for TCAF proper is now available on the Guidebook app, but I don’t have a copy to point you to. I can tell you I’ll be mad busy with four panels! And the entire slate is as star packed as you’d expect.
The weekend is also the anchor for a series of satellite events as follows:
Thursday May 7th-Friday May 8th:
- CSSC/SCEBD Academic Conference :Two full days of programs presented by the Canadian Society for the Study of Comics i
Friday May 8th:
- Librarian and Educator Day, a full day of three tracks of programming aimed at these markets.
- Word Balloon Academy a day or professional programming aimed at comics creators
Saturday May 9th-Sunday May 10th
- Comics vs Games, a parallel slate of exhibits focusing on indie games
As if that is not enough here’s a list of satellite events:
