The Vancouver Comic Arts Association is a non-profit focused on celebrating comics, art, and storytelling. Through the Vancouver Comic Arts Festival (VanCAF), the Society programs a two-day celebration of comics with readings, panels, workshops, and artist exhibitions. To learn more about our work and our values, we invite you to read our Festival FAQs, get a sense of this year’s online programming, read our land acknowledgement comic and statement, and review our code of conduct.
We believe that stories told through comics have the power to transmit ideas in ways that no other form can achieve. As we continue to grow as an organization and in our programming, we are seeking two new members to join our Board of Directors.
