LICAF is delighted to celebrate the very best of Czech comics at this year’s festival, hosted in partnership with the Czech Centres and the Czech Literary Centre.

Look out for Czech comic creatives taking part in events throughout the festival and dedicated Czech presentations in the Warehouse at the Brewery Art Centre on Saturday and Sunday.

The amazing comic Raymond, created by the legendary Czech artist Vojtěch Mašek during a residency in Kendal in 2019, will be published during this year’s festival and two new resident Czech artists, Kateřina Čupová and Štěpánka Jislová, are with us in Kendal for LICAF 2021.
