In September 2019, Magic Torch Comics CIC received £62,708 from Young Start Community Fund to deliver a two year programme of free comics workshops across Inverclyde. We will be working with groups of marginalised young people to create comics which reflect their imagination and lived experience.
Over the two years of the project we'll publish six different comic collections, host special visits from industry professionals and showcase our locally created comics at comicons across Scotland.
If you are an Inverclyde group looking to get involved with the project, please contact us.
And keep an eye out for our open sessions and workshops, which anyone can attend.
Keep an eye on our blog to stay up to date on the project and we look forward to sharing our first comics with you here soon...
