Activity: Other › Types of Public engagement and outreach - Public lecture/debate/seminar
The First USW Cardiff: Comics Symposium is interested in creator’s perspectives. It will explore comics and creativity and will examine the practice of creating comics, and the particulars of storytelling in comics.
Does changing a panel, change the story? How might a medium’s materiality affect its construction and reception? How do the theoretical and philosophical objectives of the maker inform and frame the construction of the works?
This symposium addresses these needs from the point of view of the creators involved in the production and creation of comics.
Friday Keynote from Dr. Julia Round, Bournemouth University:

and Workshop with Chris Phillips (Candleman, The Lie in You)
