Perth Comic Arts Festival 2020 Cancelled

We regret to inform you that PCAF 2020 is cancelled.

The festival organisers have made the tough decision as the health and safety of comic readers and creators is always our top priority.

We’ll be back in 2021 bigger and better but we’re always thinking of ways to build our scene – online or otherwise.

If you’d like to reach out to us at this time with ideas for online events or ideas for 2021 please shoot us a message.

Stay safe and well! Happy reading from everyone in the PCAF 2020 organising committee.
