Nordicomics Youth! Comics Camp went to Tallinn in November 2015! This time the camps had participants from Finland, Estonia and Sweden. The main focus of the camp was on fast pace and making zines. Lots of fast exercises, accompanied by feedback.

The amount of comics made in Tallinn was staggering. The participants dipped to the world of game play by using RPG elements to make a improvised comic zines. The camp also had tiny history lessons concerning the history Finnish and Estonian comics scene.

What’s in store for the future? In January 2016 there will be an exhibition in Stockholm, Sweden where the works done in Helsinki and Tallinn camps will be present.

About the project

NORDICOMICS YOUTH! COMICS CAMPS 2015

The Finnish Comics Society organised two Nordicomics Youth! comics camps in the later half of 2015 to help young comic artists, between ages 18 to 29, from Finland, Estonia and Sweden. During both camps a lot of comics were produced, new revelations made and a lot learned. The participants got to plan and work on their own project in the Helsinki camp.

The workshops in Helsinki & Tallinn supported each other by offering different content. The comics camp in Tallinn focused more on exercises and making a lot of content in short amount of time eg. short one page comics, technique experiments and small zines.

The camp was a great way for people to meet old acquaintances and make new friends as well as share information about a mutual passion; making comics. The workshops were taught by Finnish and Estonian comics professionals.

Nordicomics Youth! exhibition will be held in January 2016 in Serieteket, Stockholm, Sweden.

The Nordicomics Youth! Comics Camps were organised by the Finnish Comics Society and received support from Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture and Svenska Kulturfonden.

Nordicomics and its projects are funded by Nordic Culture Point, Nordic Children's and Youth Committee – NORDBUK, and the Finnish Comics Society. All images are the copyright of their respective owners.
