CANCELLED — Illustration Day: Picture Book Panel Discussion
IMPORTANT UPDATE — unfortunately, this event has been cancelled. Please contact the Lancaster and Morecambe VIC for more information and to obtain a refund.
How can illustration and other art forms help us and the next generation explore and understand stories of migration? Join renowned picture book creators Nadine Kaadan (Tomorrow, The Jasmine Sneeze) and Petr Horacek (Blue Penguin, The Last Tiger) along with Dr Inés Gregori Labarta, Jake Hope and others for a discussion about the power and purpose of visual language in an unsettled world. The event will take place within an exhibition of illustrations from the picture book ‘Migrations’ (Otter-Barry Books, 2019) and images from ‘In Pursuit of Peace and Hope’, a photography project with young refugees in Uganda, South Africa and Turkey.
We will conclude our illustration day with a panel including both our workshop leaders and many more figures from the world of picture books. Join us for this fascinating discussion packed with insight into the creative process and this wonderful creative area of the publishing industry!
