Bridging the Ditch: Connecting Trans-Tasman Comics Communities

The comic community is booming in Aotearoa and Australia, but visual narrative writing is often overlooked, relegated to the literary periphery. Festival Guest Curator and Rat World founder and editor-in-chief Jennifer Cheuk will chat with comics scholars and advocates Neal Curtis (NZ), Allan Xia (NZ), Joshua Santospirito (Australia) and Eleri Harris (Australia) about bridging the gap between the literary and comics worlds, and creating connections in the Australia and New Zealand comics communities.

Note: the Australian panellists will be appearing via Zoom
