European Network of Comics Representatives and Entrepreneurs

All things comics in the EU and beyond

Who is ENCRE ?

ENCRE (“ink” in French) is a Brussels-based non-profit association established under Belgian law, where people working in comics can join forces to pursue two objectives: 1. make their voices heard in Europe, and 2. cooperate for new projects and initiatives.

Whether you are a comic writer, penciler, inker, or a comic festival, bookshop, art dealer; whether you want to do culture, business, or policy; whether you are looking for a partner, a spokesperson, or just someone like you, ENCRE is your place.
