Event description

Description

Graphic lives: telling Bangladeshi migrant women's stories through graphic narratives is a joint project between MMU and Hyde Community Action. It has seen women from the British Bangladeshi community in Hyde exploring their own life stories and the historical narratives of their communities through workshops on life history, cross-cultural storytelling and digital skills, as well as visits to Manchester Museum and the Whitworth Art Gallery to engage with collections. The women have then used a simple online comics creation tool to communicate their own multimedia story using photographs, drawings and text in any language.

In this workshop, find out more about the project and the process we went through to create the comics. We'll discuss ideas for starting similar projects with other community groups, schools etc. There will be a chance to try the process for yourself and create your own comic too.
