CCA Comics students draw stories from the housing crisis. A 48 Hills exclusive series.

48 Hillsa: Drawing the Crisis

ART LOOKSĀ TheĀ Engage: ComicsĀ class at the California College of the Arts is comprised of a diverse collection of students from various majors passionate about making comics that engage the world around them.

This year, they teamed with 48Hills.org and housing activists from theĀ Anti-Eviction Mapping ProjectĀ and theĀ Housing Rights CommitteeĀ to create comics from first person accounts of San Franciscoā€™s housing crisis.

The students met with and interviewed people who are struggling or have struggled to remain in their homes, and then turned these stories into compelling visual narratives.Ā Justin Hall was the professor of the Engage: Comics class, and Peter Glanting was the Teaching Assistant.Ā 

The following comic is by CCA student Kellyn Borst. Click on each image to enlarge! (You might have to click twice).Ā See the whole series here.
