The project will be running over the course of 2022. 10 stories of women from different backgrounds will be collected through interviews. During the project the comicartist Valerie Bruckbög will create 10 comicstories about the protagonists. Additionally the stories from the interviews will be collected in written text and used for education. 10fold is a small scale project funded by Erasmus+ between the partner organisiations Orientexpress, Cap Ulysse and Blickwinkel - Mut zur Perspektive.
Orient Express, Beratungs-, Bildungs- und Kulturinitiative für Frauen - is a non-profit, based in Vienna that operates a women's counselling centre, two shelters for girls and young women, a nationwide coordination centre against abduction and forced marriage and a learning centre.
Blickwinkel - Comics schaffen Mut zur Perspektive aims to show a positive view to cultural diversity. Within their projects, interviews with people from all walks of lives are collected. The stories are then turned into short comics. The idea is to create more empathy for different situations using an artistic medium.
