Events

It’s true: we’re starting up regular events again! It’s happening!! 

We’re just seeing how this all goes — it’s been two years (TWO YEARS) — so things are likely to move around, change, swap, disappear, reappear, etc, but on the docket for right now we’ve got…

COMMUNITY EVENTS:

🌟 FIRST FRIDAYS: Shoutout to Steve Lieber, the most consistent thing on our calendar in years. He’ll be in the shop critiquing sequential art portfolios! 4-6pm.

🌸 2nd THURSDAYS: Trans Youth Meetup! This event will be every 2nd Thursday from 4-6pm. These meetups are specifically for trans youth looking to make friends, read comics, and hang in a safe space for a couple of hours. 

🌸 3rd FRIDAYS: Art Kid Meetup! This event will be every 3rd Friday from 4-6pm. These meetups are for creative youth looking to chill and draw with some new friends!

🌸 3rd SUNDAYS: Queer Youth Meetup! This event will be every 3rd Sunday from 3-5pm. These meetups are specifically for queer youth looking to make friends, read comics, and hang in a safe space for a couple of hours.

🌸 4th THURSDAYS: Creators of Color Meetup! This event will be every 4th Thursday from 5-7pm. These meetups are specifically for local creators of color looking to connect with each other and create a community within the PNW comics landscape.

🌸 3rd WEDNESDAYS: PDX Comics Crew Work Night! It’s back, and a little different than you might remember! We’re doing this once a month, on third Wednesdays, from 5-7pm. This is specifically a work night. If you’re looking to get feedback from your peers, hang out with pals and sketch/write, or meet folks who are working on similar projects to bounce off of each other, this is the place for you!

The above events all require an RSVP through Eventbrite. Click here to find your meetup and sign up! If you miss this month, try to slide in into the next one! We’ll try to have RSVPs open on the first of the month, so y’all can plan ahead.

IMPORTANT EVENT INFORMATION:

🌱 ALL indoor events require masks in order to attend. If you forget yours, please ask for one! We’ve usually got some handy.

🌱 Outdoor events do NOT require masks unless stated in the event description, so READ CAREFULLY!

🌱 Youth meetups are available to folks under the age of 18.

🌱 All children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by a guardian — we’re delighted to provide a safe space, but we can’t babysit. We’re at work!

🌱 There will be events that have an attendee cap. We only have so much space indoors and are doing our best to keep everyone as safe as possible. In order to attend events like these, you MUST RSVP using the link provided and proof of vaccination is required. We’re sorry if you miss out on an event like this due to our current limited capacity!
