Sharing Stories is Essential Sequential’s latest Lottery Community Fund project for 2020 which focuses on co-creating comics exclusively with women and people identifying as female.
What are Sharing Stories’ project goals?
Similar to our previous comic creation projects working with marginalised and vulnerable groups, Moving Ink and Studio GY, Sharing Stories will deliver a programme of workshops and online sessions, engaging a minimum of 80 women and people identifying as female in Norwich and surrounding rural areas.
The project is especially interested in benefitting those currently experiencing (or at risk of experiencing) loneliness, isolation and their associated effects on wellbeing.
What will the project deliver?
This project will be running until June 2021 and will cover a variety of design techniques and creative tasters allowing participants with different interests and skills to collaborate towards the shared goal of co-creatively producing 4 comics exploring themes and issues important to them.
The final comics produced will be shared both physically in print and digitally online.
