LAYDEEZ DO COMICS MISSION STATEMENT
Putting the yonics into comics
To champion and support the work of cartoonists, comics artists and graphic novelists whose work focuses on the drama of the everyday.
But what IS Laydeez do Comics (LDC)?
Laydeez do Comics is like a combination between a book club
and a series of TED talks
(Julie Davis Art Animal, a women’s art magazine, 2013)
Laydeez do Comics is a female-led but not female-only unique graphic novel forum that meets monthly in London. We host guests to speak about their work with a focus on comic works based on life narrative, and the everyday.
We run monthly events in London and at other centres around the UK and globe. Please visit out news pages to find details of the next event near you.
We would like to thank Arts Council England for supporting the activity to enable the first Laydeez Day Festival to take place. We would also like to thank everyone who supported and backed the crowdfunding campaign that made the first Laydeez do Comics Prize to take place in 2018.
