24 Panels Anthology Opportunity


From Bleeding cool (yeah I know)

In June last year, a fire broke out in Grenfell Tower, the twenty-storey public housing flats in North Kensington, London. 72 people died and an inquest was opened. Police and fire services believe the fire started accidentally in a fridge-freezer on the fourth floor. The rapid growth of the fire is thought to have been accelerated by the building’s exterior cladding, of a common type in widespread use. An independent review of building regulations and fire safety is in progress but many buildings have been pulling down similar cladding since. The deaths brought focus to the housing crisis, financial inequities, class divide, failures of political planning and more.

But one aspect that has not received such media coverage is in regards to victims of the Grenfell Tower fire suffering from PTSD, and this is something that the 24 Panels Blog is looking to tackle.

They are putting together a 24Panels anthology comic to aid PTSD needs of survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire.

Kieron Gillen has been appointed editor-in-chief of 24Panels, to promote themes of hope, community, positivity and unity in aid of PTSD related needs of Grenfell Tower survivors. And they are seeking submissions. Publication date is intended to be in the Autumn. Stories can be from one to twenty-four panels long and can be sent to before June 30th.

Good opportunity peoples


Much needed.

Locally, I’m not that far from Columbine High. Yeah, that one. The folks are consistently re-traumatized every time there is another “incident”.
The folks of Grenfell Tower who lived were hurt, and so are the folks in the other towers with similar cladding. With attention and continued political pressure perhaps another tragedy can be avoided. For now therapy and support does help! And that costs money.
