WEYDA is a group of young people aged 11-17, from the West End of Newcastle, who are passionate about graphic design, drawing, cartoons and filming. They have developed cartoon characters about their West End Heroes and have used these ideas and their skills, working alongside GemArts and a range of professional Artists, to develop a graphic novel about the ‘Dangers of Loan Sharks in the Community.’
This will be a celebration of the participants’ achievements and launch of their fantastic comic book that will be used as a community resource.
The project has been funded through Barnardo’s ‘Just Ask Me Fund’.
Families and friends are welcome, and refreshments will be provided.
We hope to see you on 27th February, please reply to Alexandra@gemarts.org or ring 0191 4404124 if you are able to attend.
