East and West: Cultural Exchange in the Pacific Rim

Pop culture inspires creators and artists from all over the world. Exchanging art between East and Western culture isn’t entirely new. What if we told you there was a Japanese Spiderman where Spidey pilots a giant robot and anime interpretations of beloved Marvel characters? The West has also been inspired by Eastern media to have their interpretations of magical girl anime (Star vs. the Forces of Evil) and homages to Japanese anime and video games (Steven Universe). This panel will explore how one culture interprets the other to introduce media to an international audience.

Recommended for pop culture themed conventions.
