*/Organised by:/*

/Supported by:/

/Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore, LASALLE-SIA College of the

/National Arts Council, Singapore/

The comics genre has untapped potential to further cross-cultural
understanding.  Through the use of a common visual language, we can use
the comics as a vehicle to raise greater awareness in Asia about Europe
and vice versa, and to relate encounters among the regions' peoples.
Asia-Europe Foundation (http://www.asef.org) proposes to initiate a
collaborative process between Asian and European creators, leading to
successive comics publications on such encounters and shared concerns
between the two regions.
