Full Colour: Edinburgh Meet-Up

  • Out of the Blue Drill Hall 36 Dalmeny Street Edinburgh, Scotland, EH6 United Kingdom (map)

Find our more about BHP's Full Colour project, a mentoring programme designed to help creators from BAME backgrounds get started in comics, at this meet-up with the project creators!

Full Colour is a year long mentoring and development programme that will support and amplify the voices of comics writers and artists from BAME backgrounds living in Scotland, culminating in the publication of a graphic anthology of their work to launch at Glasgow Comic Con 2018. BHP will mentor the creators through a selection of workshops and face to face meetings with a focus on creative practice, editorial work, networking and career development at a national and local level. The young people involved in the project will contribute and collaborate to make the aforementioned graphic anthology as well as work towards producing their own work, leading to those involved forming a portfolio for future development. The publication and programme will be the first of its kind in the UK. By encouraging this group to make comics and develop a creative practice we hope to change the landscape of comics in the future, making it a far more inclusive and welcoming industry.

This project is aimed towards people of BAME origins aged 14-26.
