The International Comic Arts Forum (ICAF) will be held April 20-22, 2023 at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. Founded in 1995, ICAF brings together an intimate group of comics scholars, teachers, journalists, and creative professionals from around the world for lively presentations and informal roundtable discussions about comics.

ICAF is free and open to the public!

For their first in-person gathering since 2019, this year’s ICAF guest artists include: Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas, Ebony Flowers, Meghan Parker, Priscilla Layne, and Birgit Weyhe, with an academic keynote by Professor Susan Kirtley from Portland State University.

Among the themes that ICAF 2023 will highlight are discussions of comics that focus on Indigenous issues related to decolonization, activism, and language, as well as the work of Indigenous artists.
