Discover the program of the 9th edition of Central Vapeur festival.
The association is made up of publishing collectives, illustrators and independent illustrators, actresses and cultural actors from Strasbourg and the Region Grand Est.
Since 2010, it has participated in the development and structuring of illustration, comics and contemporary drawing through the organization of events and the networking of energies at both local and European level. Since September 2015, it offers a professional consulting service: Central Vapeur Pro.

Independent publishing is available in SMEs, associations, micro or self-publishing collectives. Whether it makes wished of rigor or is dedicated to chaos, it is in Alsace, France, and elsewhere, a privileged space of creative freedom. Youth albums, abstract drawings, delicate objects, silkscreened posters, comics fanzines or publications not to put in any hands, all the trends of the independent edition of the graphic arts are represented. We chose our guests with care: come meet them and discover their creations.
