Villa Salin

The Ladydrawers joined the Finnish FEMSKT crew in Helsinki’s Villa Salin in November for a three-day research extravaganza, and it was like a little queer comics utopia, except for the math and the sauna being all the way outside.

The FEMSKT crew and Anne Elizabeth Moore (representing The Ladydrawers) gave a talk at Naisasialiitto Unioni after research residency at Villa Salin called, “Women don’t read comics and other false beliefs.” It was written up, comics-style, by the delightful Hanna-Piritan, more from whom can be seen here.

Read the full version (in Finnish) here. There’s a peeing man in it, so.
