Event description

Description

In this workshop, comics artist Georgia Webber poses the question “Why do we write about ourselves?” and invites you to join her investigation. Georgia’s comics work has intuitively described her anxiety, chronic pain, and health crises, demonstrating how she uses story to navigate health and the self. Though this workshop will not require its participants to share any personal details, we will see that when we explore our personal language of health and art, discoveries of the self inevitably emerge. Participants will engage in listening exercises, drawing games, and group discussion of how we translate our inner experience to the outer world, and how we value those translations for the connection and understanding they inspire.


Georgia Webber is a comics artist and editor obsessed with health and health communication. She lives in Toronto, where she edits the Comics section of carte blanche, offers workshops, talks, and performances, and produces MAW Vocal Arts, a community event series celebrating the voice and all its creative uses. She is known for Dumb (Fantagraphics), her graphic memoir about living with a vocal disability.
