Established in 2009, LDC is led by a committee of five UK based women creators: Rachael Ball, Emma Burleigh, Lou Crosby, Wallis Eates and Nicola Streeten.
LDC organises and hosts comic-related events in the UK and beyond and delivery is assisted by a group of volunteers.
The focus, though not exclusively, is on works which are autobiographical and by women-identifying people, including non-binary and trans.
LDC believes in the transformative potential of the comics form to offer wellbeing through making and reading.
The accessibility of the form as a storytelling medium has created fertile ground for a wealth of casual creators and minority voices.
LDC values comics as a tool to question and challenge injustices and inequalities in society on a global scale.
We are thrilled to have Dr Nicola Streeten, Nancy ArtMusic and Wallis Eates joining us at the Lakes International Comic Art Festival 2023.
