Writing in pictures - Envisioning your future through visual storytelling

The power of comics lies in its universal communication ability. It can take us into existing and non-existing world in a blink of an eye. It can bear witness of our times and propose ways to imagine a different future. Everything starts with an idea, a purpose. To communicate this idea we'll dip into the range and versatility comics offer. Think of it as making a film while painting and writing at the same time where in your audience are partners in crime, creating something out of nothing. Time and time again. 
After an introduction into key points of making comics we will work on ways to tell your story by creating a short comic.

Musik: Systemabsturz

Systemabsturz is an electro-pop duo from Berlin. Their songs are about the fact that we all (have to) reveal more and more private information on social media, but also in public spaces. Their beats are somewhere between pop and techno - the declared goal of every concert is to have sore muscles from dancing the next day.

digital cultural evening

At dareCon! you will work with many young people from different countries. Before you exchange ideas in the workshops, you will get to know each other at the cultural evening. Each group of countries presents itself briefly. You tell who you are, what life is like in your country, what is important to the people around you and what you wish for in the future.
