Beyond Words: Kate Evans presents Threads

Kate Evans presents Threads in Vancouver

For British-based cartoonist, artist, activist, and author Kate Evans, the only proper response to the refugee crisis now facing Europe (and the rest of the world) is action. In her latest graphic novel, Threads, she faces the situation head on; telling the stories of those marginalized and unwelcome in today’s EU with heartbreaking clarity. The book’s compassionate and moving dispatches from the camps that Evans visited in Calais, France, combine reportage and art to bring attention to the squalid conditions faced by people in search of a place to belong.

Alongside projected imagery from Threads and accompanying live music, the evening will feature a moderated talk with the charismatic author whose work The Guardian has called “utterly brilliant.”
