CUNE Comics-in-Residence (CUNE CiR) gives comic artists and other professionals a chance to explore the culture, the people and the local comics scene of their neighbouring European countries. Through individual projects and collaboration with local comics actives, the artists can form new professional and personal ties and exchange essential know-how. CUNE CiR is supported by Nordic Culture Point and Arts Promotion Centre Finland.
CUNE CiR is primarily aimed at comic artists from the following 11 countries: Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Denmark, Poland, Germany, the Netherlands and Russia. Artists from other European countries may apply as well.
