The event takes place at the Museum of the School of Santa Catarina (MESC) and also on Faferia – DNA of art, partner this year, where there will be some activities.
“I'm committed to carry out a second edition was better than the first, even without any Government help and/or companies.
I believe that investing in the project is very important for the permanence of the event, that generated so many fruits and moved the setting of graphics here. We started a campaign asking for the support of the people and of their exhibitors through donations of any amount can be made through the website or during the event”, explains the graphic designer Camila.
Last year the project was made possible by Elisabete Award for stimulus Anderle Santa Catarina.
In addition to the already known and anticipated exhibitors – names like Ale Kalko, Bebel Books, Batch 42, Murilo Martins and Popcorn Press -, the Graphic Park bets on new artists. According To Camilla, the goal is to encourage people with little or no experience and who are starting to take a chance in the world of graphic arts and independent publications.

Arnaldo Petrazzini, Bruna Granucci, Fernanda Volkerling; Unusual, Inert, Tasteless; Julia Brustolin & Pedro Brucznitski and Subodh Fiala are the guests who made their debut in Graphic Park 2017.
