Cloudscape’s Comics in Transit Gallery Reception

Where: Laura C Muir Theatre, Douglas College
700 Royal Ave, New Westminster, BC V3M 5Z5

When: Monday, March 26
5:30 PM – 7:30 PM

On March 26, join us for an exhibition of all the posters from our “Comics in Transit 2017” posters at the Douglas College Muir Theatre Foyer.  Nine Canadian refugees had their epic stories of struggle and survive converted into dramatic comics by nine BC comic artists, and these nine stories were scattered around bus shelters all over Vancouver in October, 2017.  This gallery reception will be our first time showing them all together! Come down to Douglas College for a drink, a chance to purchase Cloudscape books, and a chance to see the full posters and meet the artists! For more information, visit the Gallery Reception Facebook event page.

The Other Press Talks About Cloudscape

Other Press

The Other Press, Douglas College’s student newspaper, chatted with Cloudscape board members Oliver McTavish-Wisden and Bevan Thomas about Comics in Transit, Epic Canadiana, and other Cloudscape projects.

“Comics in Transit should appeal to everyone, especially students, because they’re going to be the ones taking the bus and reading these things…. I thought they’d like a glimpse into what cities are like around the world,” McTavish-Wisden said. “Some of them might recognize their own cities that they’ve come from, or they might learn a bit about their neighbours, or learn about the kind of people they’re taking the bus with.”
