Two great new storytelling resources

'Immigrant X just put out a comic strip and it’s awesome'

'The fictional story takes place in an unnamed Western democracy, sometime in the recent past, or in the near future — or maybe even today. It centers around three radical activists who use their contacts within the immigration system to figure out the location of raids in advance. They then rush to warn undocumented families before immigration authorities can arrest them...'

'My journey : stories of London migrants'

Looks very very interesting. I hope I can make it.

'They make up 40% of the population of London, and everyone seems to be talking about them. But what do the capital’s migrants say about themselves?

'My Journey showcases the work of London migrants from all over the world, who use a range of media to tell their personal stories, including experiences of immigration detention and homelessness, the triumph of settling in, and candid observations about London life.

'Visitors are invited to browse comic strips, listen to audio stories, watch short films and view medium format, tintype and digital photographs produced by the group.'
