About the event:

What will Europe, what will the European Union look like in 50,100, 250 years?

That is what we, the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, asked graphic novelists and comic artists from all over the world, as part of the second round of our Animate Europe International Comics Competition.

Join us for the launch of our exhibition, find out what our artists have envisioned for Europe and let’s have a chat about what the future might hold – for Britain, for the EU, for Europe.
