As you know, LDComics is run by artists… for artists!
We’re pretty brilliant at what we offer the comics community…free talks and socials with artists and industry professionals, a platform to share your work, development workshops, an artists residential, a women-only award and a travelling zine library…just to name a few!
And what’s more…we’ve been doing this on a totally volunteer basis (because we love being awesome).
We want to grow the LDC community so that we can ALL benefit from a wider network of people and resources. Strength in numbers as they say.
Right now we need help with community engagement – we’re so busy with organising and hosting the events (on top of our own working lives) that it always get’s pushed to the bottom of our to do lists.
Here is our Community Engagement Wish List
If you’d like to volunteer to help us grow together, for the benefit of all, please get in touch with us.
And don’t forget to follow us on social media and use @LDComics or #LDComics.
