Swan Song – UBC Arts Report

Ashley Park on the Arts Report (on CiTR-FM, UBC’s radio station) talks about Swan Song, Cloudscape’s music-themed anthology. She discusses the anthology’s variety of topics, which stories stood out for her in particular, and each story approaches the themes differently. In particular, she enjoyed how each story was linked to a particular song.:

“It was so much fun because I would type [the song] on Youtube, and I would listen to the music, and then I would read the comic itself …. It was such a cool thing to do because… as artists we kind of have music on , just kind of zone out and go with the flow. You have sounds going on, but you are feeling the music and expressing it in its own way. So I like the sounds and the art going together.”

Cartoonist Kate Evans talks “Threads” on September 29th

For  the only proper response to the refugee crisis now facing Europe (and the rest of the world) is action. In her latest graphic novel, Threads: From the Refugee Crisis, British-based cartoonist, artist, activist, and author Kate Evans faces the refugee crisis head on; reporting accounts of those marginalized and unwelcome in today’s EU with heartbreaking clarity. The book’s compassionate and moving dispatches from the camps that Evans visited in Calais, France, combine reportage and art to bring attention to the squalid conditions faced by people in search of a place to belong.

On Friday, September 29th, at 7:30 in UBC’s Telus Studio Theatre, Evans will read excerpts from her graphic novel accompanied by projections of panels from the book, and atmospheric live music by percussionist Hamin Honari.
