13 January 2018, 2 to 5pm
Join comic book artists Sarah Bowie, Alan Dunne, Debbie Jenkinson, Paddy Lynch and Alé Mercado on an afternoon of live readings from some of their stories. This is a free event as part of the 1985 exhibition that is taking place at The Source Arts Centre. Some of the best Irish comic artists will be there performing their work.
‘1985’ is a graphic novel drama set in rural Ireland not that long ago; artist and illustrator Alé Mercado does his personal interpretation of Federico García Lorca’s classic ‘The House of Bernarda Alba’. Relocating the story to Ireland, we see a family in crisis following the death of their father as each struggles to come to terms with their own place at home and in their community. The full novel will be displayed on the walls of the Source Arts Centre Gallery until 20th January
