Culture Through Comics: An Ethnographic Cartooning Workshop 

Wednesday, October 17, 2018, 1:00 am -- 4:00 pm
at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center

Sponsored by the AFS Archives and Libraries Section and the Vermont Folklife Center


Marek Bennett (Marek Bennett's Comics Workshop)

Andy Kolovos (Vermont Folklife Center)

Ethnographic cartooning is emerging as a powerful tool for cultural representation. In this workshop we will explore the concepts and challenges of ethnographic cartooning, learn the basic techniques of cartooning and comics creation, and then try our hands at drawing our own original comics. We invite participants to bring their own primary source materials or use sample materials from the Vermont Folklife Center archives. Participants each create 1+ pages of original comics drawn from primary source texts and go home with the skills necessary to continue drawing ethnographic comics in their community. No experience required--everyone can draw comics!

Register by August 31.
