As a warm-up event for the London International Animation Festival (LIAF), a panel of authors, animators and architects will be discussing the significance of 'context' on shaping the development of visual cultural narratives in animation and architectural space, as well as the crossover between the two disciplines. The event will also feature an exhibition of animation-architecture work on the theme of context, and screenings of animations from last years LIAF.
