You’re invited to the first organizational meeting of the

Comics & Picture-story Symposium

Monday, May 7th  from 7 – 9pm

at Parsons The New School 2 West 13th St., Room 504

 Comics and picture-story symposium

A weekly symposium for artist/writers working in various text-image forms: comics, picture-stories, animation, etc. at which to present and critique current work.  The symposium will examine new ideas for the distribution of print and electronic work that move beyond the existing models of  publishing and advertising. We will re-examine the relationship between readers and autographic writers. Emphasis will be placed on self-initiated work and the development of a self-sustaining economic model for such work.  Meetings will be facilitated by a rotating group of practitioners and guest speakers. The weekly agenda will be decided upon by participants. The symposium will offer an ongoing place to learn and think about the traditions and future of text-image work.

 Guest facilitators: Austin English, Josh Bayer, Ben Katchor, Peter Kuper and Sakura Maku.
