Join us for a day of presentations, discussions and lectures to highlight the value of comics!
Origin Stories seeks to explore the political and social situations that are the basis for creativity within comics, the creative spark that leads to the creation of comics and the influence comics have on the wider creative industries and culture. Comics are a diverse creative playground for ideas and narratives that are frequently developed into other creative disciplines, film, television and games, giving them impact far beyond their origins.
Our Speakers Include:
Dave Gibbons, one of the UK’s most respected comic artists and creator of the influential Watchmen series of comics.
Karrie Fransman, Creative Director of positivenegative an organisation dedicated to amplifying academic research through engaging in visual story telling.
Steven Appleby, absurdist cartoonist and illustrator. She has worked for the Times, Sunday Telegraph and Guardian and her most recent graphic novel is Dragman.
This event is in partnership with The Lakes International Comic Arts Festival, Creative Manchester and Sheffield Hallam University, and is being held at Sheffield Hallam University.
