INKFISH (documenting trauma) - June 21st
A one-day comic creating workshop in partnership with the TORCH Network - Comics and Graphic Novels: The Politics of Form. It will be a full day workshop (10am-5pm) designed to bring together budding and experienced artists and writers in order to produce a finished piece of sequential narrative-art in just one day. The theme of the event is 'documenting trauma', though keeping to the theme is not required, the aim is that the final pieces simply tell a story through both the written word and visual arts.
After being organised into groups, participants will work together with a range of artistic materials to complete their comics-based creative project. Examples of artist’s books, comics and zines will be on hand, as well as experienced mentors: artists, comics makers and writers, who are on hand to give advice. Participants are encouraged to push the boundaries of genre and form. Final artwork will be on display during the week-long Comics Symposium, and gathered into a printed pamphlet.

This event is run in collaboration with the English Faculty and Astor Visiting Lectureship Scheme 2017, Oxford Writers' House, the British Council USA, the John Fell Fund and The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH).
