Graphic History Collective
Founded in 2008, the Graphic History Collective (GHC) is a group of activists, artists, writers, and researchers passionate about comics, history and social change.
We produce alternative histories – people’s histories – in an accessible format to help people understand the historical roots of contemporary social issues.
To date we have published two graphic novels (May Day: A Graphic History of Protest in Canada and Drawn to Change: Graphic Histories of Working Class Struggle) and we are currently busy with new collaborations and exciting activist art projects.
Our comics show that you don’t need a cape and a pair of tights to change the world.
Members of the Graphic History Collective are organized with the Canadian Freelance Union, a Community Chapter of Unifor.
