A public event with artists from across the world who will take residence in Abbot Hall Art Gallery for a few hours or more and respond to a work from the collection by creating what they think could be the "next frame" i.e. what happens next...

Each artist will be given a selection of works from the gallery collection in advance to choose from and, once finished, the next frame will be displayed alongside the original for at least one week after the festival.

Thanks to Quebec BD and Lyon BD festivals for the original concept.
