Want to draw comics this summer? Want to be a part of history?

Cedar Cottage Neighbourhood House is working on a community-based history project that needs your involvement!

How? Join the heart of the project in July & August – take part in weekly summer comics workshop for youth!

The aim of the project is to get community members like yourself engaged in your own history, and the history of this place. During the workshops, you’ll learn how to create comic-narratives based on your own experiences, archival materials, and interviews with people in the community. Participants will meet up once a week for 2-3 hours during July and August – time of day to be decided on by the group.

The comics you create will be displayed to help other community members see and learn about the history of our neighbourhood.
