‘Corniche’ is a series of comic anthologies based on research, exploration and experimentation. Including texts in Arabic and English as well as illustrations, the stories embrace written and spoken heritage, science fiction, fantasy, metaphysics, dreams and myths.
Through multiple community-led exchanges and workshops, the ‘Corniche’ project provides a platform for comic book artists and illustrators currently practising in Sharjah and the broader region to share ideas, drawings, techniques and experiences.
Coniche 4 expanded upon the previous editions by including new talent and voices through a UAE-focused open call. The workshop, making and production of Corniche 4 looked to expand the base of writers and artists in Sharjah and extend the scope of the artistic community.
