Digital comic platform CIAYO Comics is set to hold a COMICONNECT Tour to Malang, East Java, on July 21. Featuring the theme “Particle” which stands for “pairing artpreneur with local entrepreneur”, the event aims to become a platform where creative workers and businesspeople can interact and collaborate.

A statement said the tour focused on Indonesian cities with strong comic creator communities. Apart from Malang, the tour had been conducted to Yogyakarta. Following Malang, it will continue to Medan in North Sumatra and Bandung in West Java.

Rajiv, Ciayo Comics head of marketing, said that the platform had gathered the creative workers last year.

“We want them [the creative workers] to be aware of their works that have developed into a source of income,” said Rajiv.

Among cartoonists to be featured at the tour are M. Misrad, who is known for his Mice Cartoon, Jasmine Surkatty who created Komik Ga Jelas(unclear comic) and Julian Syahputra of Sengklekman comic.

Apart from comic artists, the event will also feature creative entrepreneurs from the cities where the tour is heading to.

Zeroheroes, a Malang-based clothing and apparel line, will represent creative entrepreneurs of the city in Comiconnect.

Previously, when the event was held in Yogyakarta in June, the city’s clothing and apparel line Starcross was also featured in Comiconnect. Furthermore, when Comiconnect continues to Medan and Bandung, it will also feature Medan’s calligraphy business Letter by Betty and Bandung’s KITC, a Japan animation-influenced clothing line.
