Melbourne newCardigan cardiParty

Recorded Live

The seventh in our special cardiCast ‘Summer Series’…

Welcome to a very special panel on the world of comics, cosplay and how to set up you own mini (or maxi) conventions in your library service. It’s a fantastic way to engage with your community through literature, popular culture and costume enthusiasts- exploring identity and performance is accessible, fun and won’t break the bank! Our esteemed panelists were Jack Chan (Community Coordinator at Mill Park Library Service), Kiara (Northern Cosplay Society), Jes Layton  (Geek with a Hat) and Leonee Derr  (Branch Manager/Team Leader with Stonnington Library and Information Service)
