ELCAF is the East London Comics & Arts Festival, London’s biggest annual festival dedicated to showcasing the best in comics, illustration, sequential art, and storytelling. Founded by independent publisher Nobrow in 2012, ELCAF’s aim is to introduce and celebrate both small press publications and the dynamic community of individual artists and collectives that are pushing the boundaries of comics and illustration to a growing public. There has been an exciting growth within comics and narrative illustration – mediums which have moved from the peripheries into the mainstream focus. In 2020 ELCAF will be celebrating its ninth edition with an exciting new programme of talks, workshops, screenings, and masterclasses, carefully curated and delivered by a host of national and international artists, writers and illustrators.
