Nordicomics Youth! exhibition
Venue: Comics Center, Hämeentie 150, Helsinki
Finnish Comics Society organised the first Nordicomics Youth! comics camp for young artists in August 2014 at Luukki camp center, Espoo. Ten artists aged between 18–25 years from Norway, Finland, Sweden and Estonia took part in the camp. During their week-long stay the young artists worked on their own comics stories guided by Finnish professional artists. Gallery Sarjakuvakeskus is proud to present the finished stories and the working process of the camp now in an exhibition of its own.
The exhibition presents works by Johanne Eikå Bergill, Ida Eva Neverdahl and Jofrid Sandgren Østenstad from Norway, Jennie Sörensen and Sara Hernoldson from Sweden, Ina Rosberg and Yrtti Taivaloja from Finland and Leore Klyszejko from Estonia.
The Nordicomics Youth! camp was organised by the Finnish Comics Society and received support from Nordic Children’s and Youth Committee – NORDBUK.
