You will learn about the history of comics from the end of the 19th century to the present, about famous people who are authors and fans of drawn stories, you will understand the differences in approaches to this format of drawing in different countries — from West to East, take a look behind the scenes of the comic strip “How I read the media, ”which Prokopiy creates specifically for our project, combining the topics of media literacy and the current agenda.

You will find the practical part — you can participate in the creation of the comic. Finally, Procopiy will share with the participants in the webinar his personal top 7 alternative comics for teenagers, in which (almost) there is no place for superheroes in leotards. “Reading comics is not a shame,” says the artist.
