With Me Be Us - Comics workshop
workshops for young people
- Online Session
Online programme for young people, that may be struggling in isolation, to connect with others during and beyond the pandemic. The aim of the project is to offer online video tutorials and workshops to encourage young people to develop comic characters, story plot and songs for a musical graphic novel. The novel will discover the bitter-sweet world of Murphy, a chibi (Manga inspired character) created by Nadia when she was 14, as her out spoken alter ego. The musical comics will be published online on our website and shared on social media. It will also be printed by a local publisher to be shared among the local community and wider public. The illustrations and sounds created will also be printed on wearable art (yes we will print sound too!) and sold at local festivals and through an online shop. Part of the profit will be donated to a local charity, working with young people and mental health awareness.
