About this project

In Collaboration with Arts Network Asia (ANA) and Anne Elizabeth Moore, I will be traveling to Phnom Phen, Cambodia to teach an introductory comics and self-publishing class to young women. Help me provide a space in which young women can feel comfortable sharing their own ideas within a culture that has historically given women little access to do so.

about the project

I was recently selected by Anne Elizabeth Moore’s initiative Independent Youth-Driven Cultural Production in Cambodia (IYDCPC) to teach and promote media production to young ladies in Cambodia. IYDCPC is an international institute based in Phnom Penh that encourages multidisciplinary creative responses to issues related to popular culture, with a particular focus on media, advertising, marketing, youth, gender, democracy, human rights, and globalization in Southeast Asia. Primary partners work in institutions and organizations in Phnom Penh, and affiliate organizations are brought in on a project-by-project basis. Programming hinges around an international residency program with a cultural producer who comes to the region to work with groups of young people on projects that allow them to creatively reinvision public space, global media, and their society. Projects are collaborative and emerge from Phnom Penh and thus primarily address the needs of Cambodian youth, but also respond to the needs of youth and adults throughout Southeast Asia.


The class itself, will help equip young women with the skills needed to cultivate their own personal narratives and encourage them to share their stories.
To do this, I will be teaching daily over the course of two months, beginning this November.

Your contributions will help me with traveling expenses, classroom supplies, and publishing costs.

Throughout my stay, I will be blogging about my own experiences in comic format, which you can find here, on the IYDCP wordpress blog, with the intent of self-publishing this comic after the project's completion.
