I’ve just received word from our Komiks Congress representatives Randy Valiente and Mario Macalindong that the opening of the Comics Art Exhibit at the NCCA tomorrow, February 22, is postponed for a later date. I will no longer be announcing any “announced” schedules to prevent other people from being inconvenienced. I’m sure that people who read the announcement here on my blog, won’t be able to check again at this late hour, and will find the event postponed at the venue itself.
Although I have had concerns about the Congress with regards to its scope, objectives and organization, I have kept them to myself in the hopes of something really good will come out of it. Although I still have hope, this last mess up, that of an eleventh hour schedule change when everyone is already preparing to go, doesn’t exactly fill me with confidence.
It is perhaps indicative of a deeper flaw in how this congress is being run, and I’m deeply concerned more than ever, of how serious the people involved are really taking this.
