Sono passati appena 15 giorni dalla decima edizione Lakes International Comic Art Festival che quest’anno si è svolta a Bowness-on-Windermere, ed ecco che un po’ a sorpresa lo staff del LICAF comunica in anteprima le date della prossima edizione.
“Fumettomania Factory – APS” , con sede in Sicilia, da poco iscritta al RUNTS (il Registro Unico Nazionale del Terzo Settore), è felice di comunicare che supporterà anche l’edizione 2023 del Lakes Festival , nella quale spera di poter presentare anche la sua mostra collettiva itinerante ANTHROPOCENE.
Nota bene: la prossima settimana vi raconteremo l’edizione 2022 con le parole di Damiano, Cesare e William, i tre soci di Fumettomania che vi hanno partecipato.

Lakes International Comic Art Festival returns to Bowness in September 2023
Tuesday 1st November 2022:
After the success of this year’s Lakes International Comic Art Festival in Bowness-on-Windermere the dates for next year’s event have been announced as 29th September – 1st October 2023.
Putting the Lake into the Lakes International Comic Art Festival, the weekend-long event will be just part of a dynamic, year-round programme of international comic art activity, based in the heart of the Lake District National Park.
With its continuing mission of using comics to change the world, the Festival’s work, which includes an academic conference in February at the University of Manchester, is supported by major partners that include Arts Council England, the Lake District National Park Authority, South Lakeland District Council, the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, and Lancaster University.
Since its inception in 2013, the annual Festival has been held in Kendal, but for its tenth year, the core of the Festival took over multiple venues within Bowness-on-Windermere, on the east banks of Lake Windermere. The move was met with delight by locals and comic fans alike, and plans for next year will incorporate feedback from this year’s attendees to make the very most of the new location.
Guests have yet to be announced, and exhibitor applications will open in January.

Julie Tait, Festival Director said: “We’ve been blown away by the response to the move to Bowness-on-Windermere, which we always knew would present an incredible opportunity to bring the wonder of comics to new audiences, within an iconic, world-heritage landscape.
“The move was always about re-imagining the Festival for a new era, and the feedback we’ve had will really help shape our offer next September.
“We are looking forward to welcoming our regular Festival visitors and new audiences to LICAF 2023.”
Lakes Arts Festivals, who run LICAF, is also planning to run comic art activity in many other cities and towns throughout the UK, including Kendal, along with an extensive international programme.

The Lakes International Comic Art Festival is the only one of its kind in the UK, centred on events and comics projects brought to you from one of the country’s most beautiful areas – the English Lake District, in the market town of Kendal. Modelled on European-style festivals, such as Angoulême in France, the annual Festival usually takes over the whole town for a weekend of comic art every October.
The Festival’s aim is to celebrate the whole spectrum of comic art, inspiring existing comic art fans and creators and, it hopes, generating new audiences and creators too. It invests in creators through a commissioning programme and has an emphasis on developing international collaborations.
The Patrons of the Festival are comic creators Yomi Ayeni, Kate Charlesworth, Comics Laureate Stephen L. Holland, Sean Phillips, Bryan Talbot, Mary Talbot and Zoom Rockman.
The Lakes International Comic Art Festival is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. It is supported by Cumbria County Council, Lake District National Park Authority, South Lakeland District Council and Kendal Town Council
Our main sponsor is Lancaster University and main partners are Kendal College, the Windermere Jetty Museum, the Old Laundry Theatre, NCS, Lakeview Bar and Grill and Baha.
