Graphic Wanderings: Finding Stories In Urban Space

Learn to explore your sense of place from near and far through walking and discover your particular perspective on the city’s (hi)stories and identity through drawing. Use your sketchbook to find interesting urban elements that don’t appear on a map turning each urban space unique! We will be walking through the city experimenting with the language of comics and illustrated maps to create a visual narrative that reflects our walking practice focusing on expression, storytelling and reportage. The results tell personal stories of the walk and show each participant’s subjective perspective on the city of Athens.

Athens Comics Library, in collaboration with the Netherlands Institute at Athens and Comicdom Con Athens, is inviting you to this very unique walkshop that aims to develop creative approaches to urban space. Gain the confidence to explore and draw on the streets, create your story and share your artwork with others.
