The 18th annual Falmouth Illustration Forum, brought to you by MA Illustration: Authorial Practice.
With a central focus on the Climate and Ecological Emergency, our guests for this year's Illustration Forum will speak to the theme of HOME from a diversity of perspectives.
Children's illustrator and Falmouth alumna Rebecca Cobb will be joined by Empathy Lab's Sarah Mears to discuss how children learn empathy through storytelling, and the crucial role of writers and illustrators in communicating others' life experiences in a way that young readers can empathise with.
The Dark Mountain Project's art editor Charlotte du Cann will be speaking about ten years of curating artists' work that responds to ecological unravelling, and to related social, political and psychological challenges.
Graphic Novelist Lauren Redniss will talk about her most recent book, based on her research into five generations of a Native American family living and working in an open cast coal mining area of Arizona.
Extinction Rebellion Arts Working Group, in the form of Clive Russell and Miles Glyn, will be speaking about communicating the Climate and Ecological Emergency as artists and designers.
Café Dispruptif's director and XR activist Manda Brookman will be our chair. We'll also be joined by alumni and staff of MA Illustration Authorial Practice for what promises to be a great day.
