Event Details

The Act With Love art collective collaborated with illustrator Jade Sarson (winner of Myriad Editions First Graphic Novel competition with For the Love of God, Marie!) to visualise the research of Oli Williams (Department of Health Sciences). Their comic tells the story of how stigma associated with bodyweight and size gets under the skin and is felt in the flesh. This event includes: an exhibition of screen-printed panels from the comic, signing session with Jade, and a short talk by Oli followed by a panel discussion about the project.

Free copies of the comic will be available to all who attend!

5:30 – 6:30: Meet the artist – Jade Sarson meet and greet/signing session - all welcome

6:30-7:30: Short talk (20mins) about the WoE project by Oli and then panel discussion with questions from audience (40mins) - ticket only
