Seminar topics:

  • Can illustration be used as an activist tool? We will explore the shift from text to image in visual culture and look at how images and visual symbols can be used to generate debate.

  • After the introduction of graphic novels and screen-based animation have Illustrators now found new venues for their personal expressions and opinions? And is there a borderline between art and illustration?

  • Dissemination Channels, animation and media-specific expressions will also be addressed.

In addition to the Keynote speakers and presentations, there will be workshops, exhibitions, screenings and evening programs.
