The workshops in Belgium are going well!

As you may know, Comic Art Europe has now been working for more than a year on a big literacy project through the use of comics. The aim of this big challenge is to use the comic book channel to teach different groups how to read and write. To do so, each partner associated with Comic Art Europe organizes different Community Actions adapted to their target group.

Our partner in Belgium, the Belgian Comic Strip Center, organizes comic strip creation workshops within the literacy classes of the Maison des Femmes (“The women’s house”) in Molenbeek, which is a district of Brussels. La maison des femmes works for the emancipation and the development of women and their integration as citizens in public life.

During the comic book workshops led by Juliette Boutant as part of this literacy project, participants use comics in different types of exercises, with the aim of creating a small autobiographical comic book.  The Belgian Comic Strip Center’s 2021 project is still ongoing with two groups of women, and more than half of the workshops have already been carried out so far. The results are very encouraging, and the progress is strongly noticeable!

We are happy to take part in such positive and impactful projects. Comics are a great tool that can be taken out of the realm of pure entertainment and integrated into various projects, including educational ones like this.
