This year, alongside the Bengal Foundation, we will be launching Bangladesh's first home-grown anthology of graphic literature. We recognise visual and graphic arts to be a growing medium of expression among the youth of Bangladesh today.
We have been working with British and Bangladeshi graphic artists not only for them to share and exchange, but also to provide a channel of exposure for either party into the countries' local arts scenes. After building collaborations between a number of British and Bangladeshi artists, we have decided to create an anthology of work from this genre, created entirely from a uniquely Bangladeshi context and perspective.
The anthology will include innovative, cutting-edge graphic short-stories and we have accepted submissions from cartoonists, artists and writers working across all genres. The theme of the first publication will be ‘identity’.
