Oliver East, a walking comic creator, was the first artist to be by LICAF in 2014. comics in performance

The Homesick Truant’s Cumbrian Yarn, a series of ten comics, charted Oliver’s walk of over 140 miles from Arnside to Carlisle following the West Cumbrian Railway Line. Exhibitions

For this project Oliver walked some 200 miles from Waverley Station Edinburgh to Manchester, following exactly the same route taken by an Indian elephant called Maharajah and his keeper Lorenzo Lawrence in 1872. Oliver was accompanied not by an elephant but by his phenomenally imaginative drawing and narrative skills, along with two film-makers who followed him along the route.

Take Me Back to Manchester was filmed by Cumbrian-based film-makers Dom Bush and Simon Sylvester. In this session Aileen McEvoy interviews Oliver East about his journey, followed by a special screening of the film. In Partnership with

This highly-acclaimed film has received numerous awards including the Jury Prize at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival as well as an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature. It was written and directed by Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud (Winshluss). Based on Satrapi’s graphic novel about her life in pre-and post-revolutionary Iran and later in Europe, the film traces Satrapi’s growth from child to rebellious, punk-loving teenager. In the background are the growing tensions of the political climate in Iran in the 70s and 80s, with members of her liberal-leaning family detained and then executed, and the looming shadow of the disastrous Iran/Iraq war. This special screening will be introduced by co-director Vincent Paronnaud (Winshluss). In Partnership with
