December 6th - Downtown L.A.
Free and Open to the Public
Comic Arts LA (CALA) is a free, public event promoting the appreciation of comics, graphic novels, and sequential arts among the broader Los Angeles public. CALA aims to engage the public and foster interactions among creators and readers alike by providing the community a space to connect creatively and discover new work. The inaugural festival will take place December 6th 2014 at Think Tank Gallery in lively Downtown Los Angeles.

Very carefully! Applicants are selected based on a number of criteria at the discretion of CALA and its organizers. Preference will be given to creators of comics over other creative fields, such as illustration, animation, fine art, etc. Filling out an application does not guarantee table space.
Yes. Each creator should complete an application individually, using the same table name and clicking on the 'collective' option.
Half a table. That's 7.5 square feet, 3 feet long by 2.5 feet wide. You may request one additional chair if you really, really need it, but space is limited and unfortunately not everyone can have an extra chair.
Unfortunately, no. Although we encourage publishers to apply, space is very limited and we want to fit in as many independent artists as possible.
Yes! We'll have some more info on that in the next few weeks. For now, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you're interested!
Because this is CALA's first year and we want to ensure that the event goes well for everybody, we're aiming for a smaller show than the likes of other comics fests. The Think Tank space can accommodate around 70 exhibitors, some of which will be collectives of multiple artists.
