Workshop

About this event

"From the fear of getting sick to the chaos of working at home, from the struggles of full-time parenting to the threat of economic upheaval, we offer a brief masterclass in how recent data comics on COVID-19 explore the complexities and potential of presenting data in more humanising ways. Drawing on examples gathered over the first six months of the global pandemic, we'll investigate how integrating data and comics can be a powerful tool for public health communications, community building and advocacy work. You'll then have to opportunity to create your own data comics from a live brief, with practical advice for the planning, production and distribution of data comics."
