Comics Are Great! 26 – Gathering Your Community
It’s all about organizing and executing public events to plant a flag for your community to gather around this week, as I’m joined by Onezumi Harstein and James Harknell of the upcoming Intervention! Together we talk about some of the pitfalls to be aware of when creating a public event, tips on ways to do your due diligence in planning and researching, and how one’s artistic and personal philosophies get tied into developing an event that people will want to attend.
We’re joined at the end by Sharon Iverson of the Ann Arbor District Library, who shares some new book recommendations.
