Call for Projects | La Ruche

Working on a comics project and thinking of doing a crowdfunding campaign?

The crowdfunding platform La Ruche, in partnership with MCAF and the Conseil des arts de Montréal, can help you bring your project to life!

That’s right, cartoonists who live in Montréal and have a crowdfunding project with a goal of $1,000 (minimum) are eligible to an additional funding of $500.

Visit our website for the details.

Support the Festival

Want to support the growth of MCAF and contribute to its success? Here are two ways you can do it!

Get involved as a volunteer

The 12th edition of the Montreal Comic Arts Festival will take place from May 26 to 28, 2023 on Saint-Denis Street.

Come live a unique experience alongside cartoonists and other people who are passionate about comics!

Support the festival by making a donation

Without you, MCAF wouldn’t be the same!

Whether a symbolic gesture or a larger sum, your donation goes to support cartoonists directly, helps our program year round, and allows us to keep the event free.

Tax receipts are sent for donations of $50 or more.
