A Discussion on Diversity in Comic Books
Where do comics stand in the representation of diversity?
The topical lack of representation in arts and media of diverse characters, identities and heritage often makes headlines but is not necessarily fixed, and the comic books industry makes no exception.
To address the issue, talented figures from the current French and British comic scenes, authors and illustrators Woodrow Phoenix (Crash Course, Rumble Strip) and Lucie Quemener (Baume du Tigre), and Barrack Rima (Dans le Taxi), will discuss with Emma Hayley, founder and director of SelfMadeHero.
The talk will also be the opportunity to look at a multitude of artworks and styles, from subtle pastel one-page shots to perfectly blend black-and white squares. The comic book scene is crisp and thriving, so come and join us!
