Cloudscape Comics is a proud participant in numerous comic and art-related events all over the city, including various conventions (VanCAF, TCAF, Canzine, Car Free Day…) and the long-running Vancouver Comic Jam, which is held the third Saturday of every month at the Wallflower Modern Diner on Main Street.

Cloudscape also hosts many of our own events, most taking place at Cloudscape HQ in South Memorial Park (click here for a map). These events include:
Weekly Meetings: Cloudscape hosts weekly social gatherings on Wednesdays at 7:30 PM that are open to all adults interested in drawing comics. At these meetings both aspiring and experienced comic artists can network, exchange ideas, and work on their projects in a supportive environment. Everyone is invited! Meetings are currently alternating between online and in person.
Online meetings are held via zoom. To be notified of upcoming online meetings, join our discord server.
