Tate workshops on comics and mental health launched

Members of the public, staff and students and invited to a week of activities that focus on the relationship between comics and mental health.

‘Illustrating Futures’ is an ongoing collaboration between the University of Liverpool and Comics Youth exploring the way comics and zines address mental health issues and support mental health positivity.

Activities are taking place between Monday, 16 October until Sunday, 22 October and are free and suitable for all ages. Free, daily workshops taking place include:

  • How Are You Feeling Today? – A continuous, collaborative comics creation. Comic pages produced by visitors each day will displayed in the space.
  • Self-Care Zine Workshops – We’ll teach you how to make a zine from scratch, and encourage zine swaps and collaboration between visitors.
  • Healing Isn’t Linear – An interactive display where you can draw, rearrange, and contribute to our huge wall-to-wall comic exploring the multiple pathways to healing.

The initiative is part of the University of Liverpool’s award-winning partnership with Tate.
