True to its original concept, the festival claims a true artistic identity for comic strips. This art form is exhibited in museums, art galleries and libraries.
The invited authors are at the heart of the programme. They will participate in discussions, round tables, workshops and will show how their work compares to that of contemporary artists.
The Comic Strip Festival cultivates other differences. While most events devoted to the Comic Strip last perhaps a four-day weekend, here the exhibitions, the discussions, the workshops and the artists-in-residence set up shop for a month throughout the region of Aix.
From April to May, the public is invited to cross the threshold of the city's and urban community's cultural and historic spots to discover the richness and diversity of creativity as applied to comics.
Whether the public is families or students, from Aix, the region or from throughout the country, it is ever more numerous to come to the Festival.
The free admission to the events facilitates the public's circulation between the different venues.
