Drawing Voice - Comic Conversation, July 15th, 2017

Push through the crowds, grab a seat, switch your phone to Airplane mode and enjoy the work of some of the best visual storytellers from Sydney and greater Australia.

Drawing Voice, is a storytelling event that places the work of Meg O’Shea (SYD), Joshua Santospirito (HOBART), Safdar Ahmed (SYD), Sarah Catherine Firth (MELB), Lee Whitmore (SYD) and Eleri Mai Harris (CANBERRA), right in front of your eyeballs.

Each of these artists creates personal, thoughtful, occasionally heartbreaking, sometimes hilarious works for adults, skillfully manipulating the comics medium to create powerful, moving content. Their work addresses political themes, issues of identity, memory, and place, and range in form from comic journalism, to philosophy, fiction and biography.

After the readings the authors will engage in a question and answer and you can even purchase some of their books.
