Comics Workshop “We heroes”

During the first week of the summer holidays in 2016, 12- to 16-year-olds from the refugee housing facility on Soorstraße, together with youths from other Berlin districts, put together a small comics magazine under the motto “We heroes”. The German Comics Association once again organised this workshop together with the Youth Art School in Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf.

Under the direction of Anna Gusella, participants drew their own personal hero characters, created colourful masks and costumes, and drew matching logos onto t-shirts. Cheerful enthusiasm, creativity, and mutual support made up the working atmosphere in the group.
