Comics workshop in Kolkata, India

The class presenting their achievements
Anna Pesonen-Smith and Chris Smith took part in the Tampere Summer University course “Comics as a Method in Multicultural Pedagogy” last year, and as a follow-up of their course they ran, through their own contacts, a comics workshop in an all-girl school in Kolkata.

Both of them have published their report of the workshop in their respective blogs, see links below:

From the very thorough report you can read how they arranged the workshop with the school and how the pupils performed. Anna and Chris both enjoyed teaching the comics method and said they would be pleased to do another workshop again. Anna’s blog contains also a description and many reflections on the Tampere course, which I read with close attention, having been the comics trainer there.

This is another example how the grassroots comics idea spreads -  through enthusiastic people.
