Inspired by our current exhibition at Weston Park Museum, Loved&Lost, join award-winning graphic novelist and comics historian Dr Nicola Streeten for an insight into how the graphic novel form is being used to convey stories and experiences of loss and love.

Nicola will introduce you to examples of works including her own graphic memoir based on bereavement with an illustrated talk. She will then lead some practical and fun guided drawing exercises with you to produce your own comic. All materials will be provided and no experience is necessary to participate, everyone is welcome. There will be a lunch break, but lunch is not provided.

Dr Nicola Streeten is a speaker, writer, drawer, teacher of comics and organiser of comics events. Her graphic memoir Billy, Me & You (2011, Myriad Editions) is about her process of bereavement following the death of her child. Nicola directs LDComics (Est. 2009 as Laydeez do Comics), the international women-led comics forum open to all. Her AHRC funded doctoral research informed her co-editing of The Inking Woman (2018, Myriad Editions) an illustrated history of women’s cartooning in Britain. This is complemented by her publication UK Feminist Cartoons and Comics: A Critical Survey (2020 Palgrave Macmillan).
