From Ink To Action is a global comic art exhibition that brings together twelve talented artists from the Arab region to tackle pressing environmental issues through the compelling medium of comic art.

In this immersive exhibition, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the diverse perspectives of these twelve artists, hailing from Lebanon, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, and Algeria. They have been commissioned to create powerful narratives that address the urgent climate crisis and environmental threats in their own contexts.

Each artist offers a unique lens through which to view these global challenges.

Three artists featured in the exhibition will be joining us across festival activities to share insight, skills and expertise through workshops including: Noha Habaieb, Tracy Chahwan and Zainab Fasiki.

From Ink to Action – Using Comic Art to Save the Planet is a collaboration between The Lakes International Comic Art Festival (LICAF) and the British Council – MENA.

From Ink to Action was launched on the global stage in December 2023 at COP 28. The anthology will be launched in the U.K. as part of Festival of Libraries 2024
