The panel is political: Comics for social change
July 28, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Using examples from their recent publishing projects, Ad Astra Comix is visiting Halifax with a presentation on the benefits of using comics to talk about social change – from marginalized histories to mental health, political satire to the do’s and don’t’s of being an ally. Comics offer a unique capacity to engage, inform and entertain.
Ad Astra Comix is a Canadian publisher of comics social justice themes. In 2016, the company is traveling across North America to foster a community of political comics artists, writers and readers.
