Ever thought drawing is just about making pretty pictures?
Meet Kara Sievewright.
Demonstrating the amazing power of her craft, Sievewright’s work is building awareness around not one but three different social issues: the queer and trans movement, Canadian labour history, and cancer patient identity.
Sievewright, alongside Paul Buhle and the other members of the Graphic History Collective, were recently awarded the 2017 Wilson Book Prize for their book, Drawn to Change: Graphic Histories of Working-Class Struggle.
A contributor of the Radical History Poster Project, Sievewright also recently released the amazing image above which aims to inspire social transformation by highlighting the radical roots of the Pride movement.
As if that wasn’t enough, Sievewright is also presenting this weekend at the 2017 Graphic Medicine Seattle conference on her comic about cancer and queerness.
Come to her upcoming SkIP session to learn more about how she is using drawing to redraw the world in so many different ways.
