Avalon Moore: Artist Talk

Wednesday, February 21, 7:30pm KIAC Ballroom

Join current artist in resident, Avalon Moore (Halifax), as she shares her past work and also a project that she’s been working on here in Dawson for the past month.

Avalon Moore is a comics artist based out of unceded Mi’kmaq territory, in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Her webcomic, Born On A Tuesday, has been running with weekly updates since December 2012 (bornonatuesday.com), and her graphic novel Between was released online between June 2016 and July 2017 (www.thestorybetween.com). Her master’s thesis research centres on the use of comics-making as a tool for personal storytelling and community building with queer youth. During her residency, Avalon is working on a collection of collage comics that tell the story of growing up alongside domestic abuse, and coming to terms with the complexity and ambiguity of human connection.
