When & Where
Laydeez do comics
Streeten and Lightman shared an interest in comics and graphic novels that were not about superheroes but were focused on the domestic and autobiographical. They felt that they couldn’t be alone and they were right! LDC now has a worldwide presence with meetings held in San Francisco, New York, Toronto, as well as closer to home in Bristol and Leeds. Artists, academics, publishers and fans from around the world are invited to speak at LDC. The evenings are a platform for people to test new works and ideas, where emerging artists present their work alongside more established practitioners, in an inspiring and friendly atmosphere. Everyone is welcome, including those with no knowledge of comics and those already immersed. Home-baked cakes are served too!
LDC London meetings are currently run by Wallis Eates and Rachael Ball
