Attendees will be given free entry to all events during the Thought Bubble Comic Art Festival.To book a place please contact info@leedsrefugeeforum.org.uk. Places will be offered on a first come-first served basis.

Community Comics Power UK are a small organisation who work with people who traditionally haven’t “got a voice”. They facilitate workshops to teach groups how to use comic strips to tell their stories, often for the first time. The process enables the participant, who may have never shared their experience before, to become the star of their own story and therefore become visible. Attendees may have never shared their story before and there’s a lot of respect felt during this process. The original idea was developed by Sharad Sharma who set up World Comics India. Community Comics Power UK are the sister organisation.

The comics created at these workshops are then exhibited in Leeds City Museum, on Saturday 23rd September & 24th September 2017 to promote discussion, debate and social change.
