Altekrea | festival of alternative creation is a dynamic new show in the Waterloo Region, bringing together a new dimension of artists and creators under one roof! 

ALTEKREA celebrates the artistic excellence of comic, sci-fi, fantasy, animation and other alternative branches including tattoo, graffiti and urban art. Our aim is to provide professional development opportunities to emerging artists through showcase, networking events, workshop and reviews.

With the rising interest in classic alternative 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. 

Historically, our festival has attracted 2000 people to the Kitchener Downtown core. This year, with our partnerships with Summer Lights Festival, CAFKA and Our World of Music Festival, we're bringing a packed weekend of lively programming from June 17-19, 2016. You can check out more information on our website and our social media platforms, on which we are active year round. If you're in the Kitchener-Waterloo area this June, come check us out in the Kitchener City Hall Rotunda!
