The National Cartoon Gallery in a unique partnership with the Japanese Embassy is hosting an exhibition of winning entries from the 14th International Manga Awards. These awards attract entries from Manga artists from all over Southeast Asia. The gallery has complemented this exhibiting with invited Australian Manga artists contributing their own works, adding over 60 works and making this a truly international collaboration.
The growing interest in Manga, particularly amongst children and young adults has spread worldwide, so we are delighted with this opportunity to bring Manga to Coffs Harbour. This exhibition will attract a growing number of young and not so you who are, Manga fans offering something quite different to our regular cartoon exhibitions. To add a local flavour we have teamed with the Coffs Harbour Chapter of the Australia-Japan Society who will run workshops and add cultural artifacts to the exhibition.
