Call them humorists, social commentators, or simply witty artists. What does it take to be a cartoonist or comic artist in Southeast Asia, through history, and today? Hear from these speakers about the many twists and turns in the lives of these artists from Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia, the social taboos they broke through with their art, and the inspiration they spark in contemporary artists and readers within and beyond the region.

This programme is supported by ComXNaut Studios and Sing Lit Station.
