WATCH AT HOME EVENT
AVAILABLE ONLINE NOW UNTIL SUN 7 MAR

Few other illustrators and storytellers are able to capture the essence of the bond between humans and their animals with as much care and thought as Shaun Tan.

One of our brightest exports, he will join us via live stream for a conversation about Dog, his redesigned release of excerpts from 2018’s dark and sharply observant collection Tales from the Inner City. As we try to move through a global pandemic, our four-legged friends have never been more important.
