COMICS AROUND THE BALTIC SEA SEMINAR: On the 9th and 10th December the Finnish Comics Society organizes an international comics seminar in the Koomiksikeskus. The seminar focuses on comics culture in the countries around the Baltic sea. The main idea of the seminar is to talk about possibilities of building a comics programme that would cover all these Baltic sea countries. This would need EU financing, and one of the biggest aims of this seminar is to see if support could be applied. In addition to the planning of the EU programme the object is to discuss eg. how Baltic cooperation between the comics festivals could be increased.
The Finnish Comics Society is hosting a Nordicomics workshop in Tallinn. The workshop will be held in Rotermanni keskus in central tallinn, Estonia, at the Pop-up Koomiksikeskus from 5th to 9th of December 2011. At the same time there will be the Nordicomics Baltic exhibition, which showcases new comics from the Nordic and Baltic countries.
