I've just found out about an event at the ICA in London. It's called Manga Live, and is divided into two events Manga Live (Fri 03 Sep) and will discuss if Manga can take off in the UK.

The second event (Sat 04 Sep) is the Manga Live! Manga Masterclass which forms a practical demonstration and workshop. The masterclass will also have a special preview screening of Rogue Farm.
Full Story
Press Release as follows:

Manga Live!

Talks: Fri 03 Sep 2004.

A unique opportunity to meet bright young manga talents direct from Tokyo and discover that manga is not all tits and tentacles.

Can Japanese comics conquer the UK? In Japan, manga account for nearly 40% of everything in print. Across Europe and America, they are the fastest-growing publishing sector, now hitting the best-seller lists. Meet: Hisaki Sakurai, who has adapted The Ring and features in new anthology Manga Mover; Kan Takahama, rising star of 'Nouvelle Manga', creator of the sexy slice-of-life Kinderbook and Mariko Parade, the tender break-up of Frederic Boilet and his model, Mariko Konno, who will also be present. Joining them and others in conversation are Sean Michael Wilson, manga publisher and writer, and Paul Gravett, author of Manga: Sixty Years of Japanese Comics. Suitable for ages 16 and older.
