What is Altekrea?
ALTEKREA celebrates the artistic excellence of comic, sci-fi, fantasy, animation and other alternative branches. Our aim is provide professional and development opportunities to emerging artists through showcase, networking events, workshop and reviews.
With the rising interest in classic “geek” culture in the mainstream audience, the show wishes to continue bridging the gap between popular culture communities, and also share the original and independent works of new creators.
Finally, ALTEKREA seeks to increase exposure and offer support for the independent community for the artists of this counterculture.


The Story
THE G33K ART SHOW was started out of a question: Why is it so hard for comic artists to apply and receive grants from arts foundations? Artistic expression has been segregated into niches that recognize certain forms as “art”, while certain others are dismissed, or neatly categorized as “geek culture”, leaving the creators to secure their own resources.
However, the benefits that these communities could have for each other are tremendous. There are more interconnections than we realize, and bridging the gap could promise new partnerships between all industries. The show also offers the chance for the audience to become involved with the artists through volunteer opportunities, which develop new networks and also mentorship possibilities.
