Lagos Comics & Cartoons Carnival 2007 by shylle(m): 11:05pm On Oct 25, 2007
3rd LAGOS COMICS & CARTOONS CARNIVAL

LC3 is a unique event initiated and coordinated by Revolution Media and is geared towards raising the awareness and sensitivity of the public (especially the youths) towards the vast field of cartoons, comics and animation creation and publishing while adding a boost to the nation's reading and entertainment culture.

The first edition of LC3, held in September 2004, was a collaborative effort of 3 enterprising young men (who firmly believe that Nigeria is a fertile ground for the emergence of a richly rewarding and potentially booming comics pop-culture) facilitated by Evolution Media (now Revolution Media), Design Jockey Sessions and with support from CORA (Committee for Relevant Art) as a part of the 6th Lagos Book and Art Festival. LC3 '04 recorded considerable success, which points out the fact that there is huge potential for the emergence of a comics and cartoon industry.

This year, we plan to make LC3 '07 bigger and better than the last effort in September 2006. The event is slated to hold from 9th to 11th of November 2007 as a part of the 9th Lagos Book & Art Festival at the National Theatre, Iganmu, Lagos.



Programme

The third installment of LC3 will have a high capacity building content with major focus on trainings and workshops for up coming creatives in the comics and cartoons trade. Participants in the training seminars and workshops will be drawn from secondary schools, higher institutions of learning, independent practitioners and practicing professionals in established advertising / media related agencies, newspaper houses, etc that could be interested in a refresher course of sorts. Facilitators will be drawn from a shortlist of highly skilled professionals and the sessions will be highly interactive.

The first two days of LC3 '07 will be dedicated to these workshops and seminars running alongside the exhibitions and sales while the third day will be dedicated fully to a multimedia exhibition of works by major players and emerging talents in the comics, cartoons, animation and motion graphics trade, which will dovetail into a dance party at the end of the event headlined by an 'A' list Disc Jockey. LC3 '07 is thus designed to cater for the multiple needs of exposition, networking, marketing and entertainment.

Collaborators

In achieving the set goals for LC3, and as a direct benefit of having done this before, we shall be facilitating this carnival in collaboration with front line creative art and graphics companies and individuals; some of whom we have collaborated with in the past, who will also exhibit their publications and artistic offerings.

Co-facilitators will include Children And The Environment (CATE), Design Jockey Sessions, Imperial Creation Studios, the Cartoonists Association of Nigeria amongst others.

The Committee for Relevant Art (CORA), as in the past, shall provide a broad platform at the 9th Lagos Book and Art Festival at which LC3 can draw from a large pool of book and art enthusiasts.

Glossy Brochures branded by our sponsors and containing general history and information about the speakers and exhibitors at the carnival will be made available to participants and visitors to further aid the networking we hope to sustain.

For more information, please contact the undersigned.

We look forward to your active participation.

Yours Faithfully,
