2D, the Northern Ireland Comics Festival, is an annual event that celebrates comic book culture and works to promote and support sequential art and storytelling. 2D is organised and supported by the Verbal Arts Centre, a unique and celebrated educational charity founded to promote the spoken and written word in Ireland.
The festival is designed to give comic creators and the public a chance to interact through a series of events where there can be focused examinations of the medium and a genuine, inclusive and engaging celebration of comics.
There is also a growing focus on the industry side of comics with the festival providing a series of invaluable training and educational events. The 2D Festival offers free admission to a comics fair, workshops and talks.
