Comics for All talk + workshop
re:publica detroit conference
SEPT. 28, 2019
Join us 11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28 as Maamoul Press presents Comics For All: Visual Storytelling As Resistance at the access-themed re:publica Detroit conference, held at The Tangent Gallery, 715 East Milwaukee Avenue, Detroit.
Designed as a dual workshop and meetup, the session will allow local and visiting artists, particularly those working in comics, to get to know one-another both on a personal level and as artists through a facilitated discussion and participatory art workshop.
Participants will engage in a group discussion about problems in the comics industry today and the power of comics as a tool for radical for-us-by-us storytelling, before diving into a fast-paced art workshop. We will work together collectively to create “exquisite corpse” style comics stories, which will be reviewed and discussed together at the end. Everyone in the space will contribute to multiple comic strips, and everyone will take home one comic strip that a number of artists contributed to.
