Maison des Auteurs
In order to provide concrete support to image creators who live in Angoulê- me or who wish to go there for their residency, La Maison des Auteurs was created in July 2002 at the initiative of the Syndicat Mixte du Pôle Image - Magelis. Since January 1, 2008, it has been part of one of the departments of the International City of Comics and Images. This international residen- cy has hosted comic book authors, illustrators, animation directors ... for periods ranging from three months to two and sometimes even four years. Since its opening in July 2002, the house of authors has welcomed more than 300 artists in residence, while some fifty local authors benefit from its many services.
