Community Comics Exhibition
The result of a project I've been working on over the summer in Moss Side. I've been employed to gather responses to the JRF's study on social cohesion, part of the study having been undertaken in Moss Side. Working with three youth groups and one group of older people I've taught comic skills which have then been applied to making drawings and strips about how individuals feel about their area, it's perceived problems and poor media reputation.
I'll be posting the resulting artwork once it's been 'premiered' this week at Manchester Town Hall, plus a short report on the experience.
