How it works
Grassroots Comics movement is a volunteer based movement. World Comics India has only one full time staff. Through our wide network of volunteer via partner organizations and institute we are spread in different locations of the globe.
How a workshop unfolds
A Comics workshop is generally for a 3 days period. If it were a trainers’ workshop the length would be 6 days.
How World Comics organizes a workshop
World Comics mostly organize workshops on invitation from NGOs, Institutes and Universities. But WCI also has its priority and mandate to support small organizations and people’s movement, therefore funds and invitation is not a criterion to organize a workshop.
How much it costs
Grassroots comics is a cost effective medium, therefore one only needs a pencil , paper, black pen and something to say.
A group of 15-20 participants may attend one workshop. A workshop hall with table and chair is ideal but we are used to working on floor. (Better if old newspapers are available to support your drawing paper). An access to photocopying the creations is always helpful as grassroots comics are photocopy format.
