Other is a norm-critical community comics project. Through photography, text and drawn elements we tell stories about how norms affect and limit the lives of people in different positions in society. The startingpoint for the comics is the everyday life and experiences of the participants. The aim of the project is to create discussion and more space for diversity. Some of the people in the comics are the storytellers of the comics, others are people unrelated to the stories.
Other is a continuing project started in 2017. At the moment I work with LGBTQIA+- people and minorities within the minority. I work with the project in group workshops and one on one discussions. Check the events page for upcoming workshops or send me an e-mail if you woud like to participate.
The project is organized in collaboration with Sateenkaariperheet ry and various local, national and international organisations.
Funders are Nordic Culture Piont, Taike, Svenska Kulturfonden, Konstsamfundet, Oscar Öflunds stiftelse, the city of Helsinki and Suomen Kulttuurirahasto.
A warm thank you to all participants!
