Hong Kong Comics Artists Siuhak & Little Thunder Participate in World-class European Comics Extravaganza: The 40th Angoulême International Comics Festival


Date & Time:
31/01/2013 - 03/02/2013


Cross-Media and Cross-Cultural Comics Concert & Creative Workshop
 

Hong Kong Arts Centre(HKAC) will participate in the four-day Angoulême International Comics Festival in the cultural city of Angoulême in southwest France from 31th January to 3rd February 2013. Two Hong Kong comics artists Siuhak and Little Thunder will also be joining this trip to France as the first Asian artists performing in the Comics Concert (Concerts de dessins®) of the Angoulême Festival, along with six other French artists and musicians. This is a cross-media and cross-cultural comics and music performance aiming to showcase the talent and creativity of Hong Kong comics artists to audiences from different countries, highlighting Hong Kong’s position as Asia’s city of creativity and explore overseas markets for Hong Kong comics.

 

Angoulême is the hub of comics in France, its annual international comics festival is a must-go for all comics professionals from around the world, and has been catching the attention of comics artists, publishers and distributors consistently. This year, France and Hong Kong will collaborate and embark on a new journey of creativity and discovery in the world of comics art, where artists from the two ­­regions will work magic togetherwith their arts to dazzle and inspire their audiences. This project is also a great step to a closer relationship between the HKAC and the Angoulême Festival.


Will keep you posted about HK’s participation in the Angouleme Festival. Stay Tuned!
