With Sharad Sharma Draw

Draw without prior knowledge: Grassroot Comic shows how anyone can draw their own experience into a comic. For this, Fumetto has invited the illustrator Sharad Sharma from the distant Delhi. He is the founder of the World Comic Networks and the Grassroot Comics. His concept to teach comic drawing, as a tool for communication for marginalized groups, was originally developed in India, and is today being used in many parts of the world for various target groups (Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Finland, Laos, USA, Brasil, Japan, South Africa, UK et al). During the workshop Sharma will convey to the participants how they can realize a one page story on a topic of their choice.
