Are you an artist based in India, Nepal or Sri Lanka? Are you interested in international collaborations? Is your work focused around gender? Do you have life stories to tell? Are you wondering where to start?
Creating Heroines is inviting emerging mid-career artists to take part in and collaborate with other artists from across South Asia through a week-long online workshop series led by award-winning British graphic novelist and comic scholar Dr Nicola Streeten.
In a step by step approach, Dr. Streeten along with guest lecturers including storytellers and artists from the UK and South Asia will guide you through a series of fun practical exercises to help you develop original multimedia content focusing on gender related themes through comics, graphic novels, zines, short films and/or animation.
Following the online workshop, participants will have the opportunity to apply for additional funding to further develop their ideas through cross-border collaboration amongst the participating artists
