Ink Spill has a history of sometimes traveling afield (but not too far & afield) from New Yorker cartoonist territory.  Here’s an event kindly brought to my attention: The New York Comics & Picture-story Symposium. Link here to their program — the next event is scheduled for March 31st.

(My thanks to Ben Katchor for the link)
