East Wood Comics

During 2019, Nottingham UNESCO City of Literature has been working with the DH Lawrence Birthplace museum and Pop-Up Projects on a National Lottery Heritage Fund-sponsored project to reanimate the life and work of David Herbert Lawrence, Eastwood’s influential novelist, poet and radical. Young people from Hall Park Academy, Eastwood and students from the University of Nottingham Creative Writing BA and Nottingham Trent University Illustration MA have come together to address the big Lawrentian themes such as of identify, war, belonging and gender. To celebrate the launch of East Wood Comics, we are hosting the Our Past, Our Stories, Our Future Symposium with two days of heritage and culture workshops, dialogues and provocations. We are grateful for the generous funding and ongoing support from The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
