Creating and distributing comics are a powerful vehicle for self-expression. They are visual communication of narratives- personal, educational, fictions, non-fictions – and allow for experimentation with images, text and non-linear storytelling.
In this class, we will explore the wide variety of comics in the archive and discuss their personal and societal impact. We will talk about how and why comics are created, replicated, distributed and how this process can be empowering. The second half of the session will be a lesson in the art of comic creation. Participants will leave with the beginning of their own personal comic.
This workshop will be facilitated by Jan Descartes
