2023 was the year Trinity City Comics went from a dream to a reality. First, a team of adult and teen African American artists produced a jaw-dropping 48-page first issue. Then, a team of African American, Latinx, queer, able, and disabled adult and teen educators led workshops with over 100 teens and adults in New Orleans and Baton Rouge using the comic book to spark conversation and artmaking about the future of their communities. An impressive 95% of our adult workshop partners report they find the whole project inspiring and highly useful for their efforts to develop young people as learners and leaders.
In 2024, we plan to reach many more teens and adults, and we plan to involve them more deeply in the work of creating Trinity City Comics Issue #2. This includes intensive consultations with teens living with disabilities, incarceration, and climate change, like our teen protagonists. To accomplish this goal, we need help.
On Thursday, November 2, 2023, an amazing group of New Orleans artists, activists, parents, teens and culture-bearers came together to raise $2,000 to help pay our team of African American adult and teen artists and writers to create Issue #2. Now, we are turning to our online community to help us raise another $2,000 before the end of 2023.
Can you make a donation of any amount? As a volunteer-led project, we can say with pride that 100% of your money will go towards fees for artists and writers, both adults and teens.
