Turning Social Innovations into a Comic Book

Join the launch event of the comic book ‘An Equal Future Inspiring Social Innovations from Finland, the UK and Ireland’.

The Finnish Institute in the UK and Ireland celebrates its 30th birthday with a publication highlighting social innovations that promote equality. The innovations have been selected following interviews with experts from the three regions. Three leading comic artists worked on the book: Maria Björklund from Finland, Darryl Cunningham from England and PJ Holden from Northern Ireland.

The format of the book is an anthology and each artist tackles a different theme in their work. Cunningham’s contribution investigates universal basic income, Holden, in turn, sheds light on inventions that put technology to work for the cause of equality and Björklund explores innovations based on human interaction.

Join Maria Björklund, Darryl Cunningham and PJ Holden as they talk about the process of making the book with Andrew Miles, professor of Sociology at the University of Manchester.

Get your free e-book in English, Swedish or Finnish. The project was carried out in collaboration with Lakes International Comic Arts Festival.
