This theme delves into the world of graphic novels. We invited a popular young comic artist with laudable achievements to lead the panel session. We also invited various other individuals who are internationally recognised for their great artistic talents. They investigate deeply into the world of comic art and how the mind of the artist works.
Our outstanding panellists consider the issues surrounding writing music in the contemporary world.
