Do you wanna make comics? Are you aged 14-26 and from a BAME background? We want you to get involved with our mentorship programme designed to give young comic makers a boost! Join our workshops to learn all about making comics - from the very basics to joining in with our Full Colour Anthology to be published in June 2018.
Full Colour is a year long mentoring and development programme that will support and amplify the voices of comics writers and artists from BAME backgrounds living in Scotland, culminating in the publication of a graphic anthology of their work to launch at Glasgow Comic Con 2018. BHP will mentor the creators through a selection of workshops and face to face meetings with a focus on creative practice, editorial work, networking and career development at a national and local level. The young people involved in the project will contribute and collaborate to make the aforementioned graphic anthology as well as work towards producing their own work, leading to those involved forming a portfolio for future development. The publication and programme will be the first of its kind in the UK. By encouraging this group to make comics and develop a creative practice we hope to change the landscape of comics in the future, making it a far more inclusive and welcoming industry.
