THE PROJECTS is a festival of experimental comics and narrative arts, happening at the IPRC and other locations in Portland, OR. This year's event begins with a week long artist residency which leads up to a huge 1 day festival at the IPRC on September 27, 2014.
4 days of workshops, exhibitions, panels, performances, projections and collaborative projects. Introducing experimental artists from comics, animation, and other narrative arts.
The festival is a free event, oriented toward creative process, idiosyncratic expression, and inspiration, leaving behind the flat model of comics as commerce.
