Drawing Out, Drawing In: A Spotlight on Graphic Novels [UPDATED 21/04/10]
Australia's first Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas, the new Wheeler Centre in Melbourne, is running a Graphic Novel Spotlight weekend.
The graphic novel still attracts more than its share of stigma and snobbery, but its audiences are evangelical, its writers inspired and its sales enviable. And some of the most exciting developments in the form are coming out of Melbourne. With panel discussions, workshops and talks, and the help of some of the leading artists and writers in the field (including Bernard Caleo, Queenie Chan, W. Chew Chan, Oslo Davis, George Dunford, Nicki Greenberg, Bruce Mutard, Shaun Tan, Andrew Weldon and others) the Wheeler Centre is going to colour in the picture.
Dates: Friday 23 to Sunday 25 April 2010
Venue: Wheeler Centre, 176 Little Lonsdale St Melbourne Vic 3000 Australia
Phone: (03) 9094 7800
Cost: ALL Saturday sessions are now free courtesy of publisher sponsor Allen & Unwin!
