Call for Projects | La Ruche

Working on a comics project and thinking of doing a crowdfunding campaign? The Conseil des arts de Montréal and La Ruche, in partnership with MCAF, can help you bring your project to life!

That’s right, comic artists who have a crowdfunding project with a goal of $1,000 or more are eligible to an additional funding of $500 from the Conseil des arts de Montréal.

Eligibility Requirements:

In order to receive the Conseil des arts de Montréal’s contribution, the campaign on La Ruche must be 100% successful. Selected comic artists will also have access to coaching services offered by La Ruche to help make their campaign a success.
