The Comix Workshop
|Add event to calendar||
It would be an understatement to say that comics in India have not had as flourishing a practice as cinema, literature and art. The public knowledge about the comic book practice and culture in India has often been limited to a few major publications and epic productions. Most of them have happened at least a decade ago, maybe more. And now that we stand on the threshold of what is being touted as the graphic novel/comic boom in India, a few questions stare at us. How do we talk, in a public platform, about the hidden narratives that have contributed so immensely to the growth and evolution of the form in India? How do we popularize the discourse of comics in India? How do we know and share the knowledge pool that contributes to the comic book practice and readership in India? In an attempt to address these questions, Sarai-CSDS and the French Information and Resource Center (FIRC) have collaborated to produce a series of events focusing on a deeper and richer conversation about the comic book culture in India. One such event is the Comic Book Workshop. This session of the workshop will be taken by comics exponent Orijit Sen.
