We’re pleased to announce that submissions for Conundrum Press’s second annual Mini-Comic Bursary for Black and Indigenous Creators are now open.
Why was this bursary established?
Who received last year’s bursary?
We were delighted to award the 2020 BIPOC Mini-Comic to Talysha Bujold-Abu, an artist-illustrator, researcher, and arts facilitator with a Masters of Fine Arts (MFA) from the University of Windsor. In her practice, Bujold-Abu explores the liminal space of mixed heritage identity, addressing shifting interpretations of perceived difference – blackness as both a label and state of being. Through this work, she interrogates both implicit and explicit racism, acting as participant and witness to shifting interpretations of racial hierarchies. Talysha Bujold-Abu is a second generation Canadian, of Ghanaian and French Canadian heritage. Learn about her work here.
To apply for the bursary, send 3-5 sample pages to email@example.com before December 31, 2021. Please include “BIPOC Bursary” in the subject line.
