Picturing Coexistence and Conflict: Learning about the Other through Grassroots Comics



1The wall poster and eight-pager comics in this publication, represent the experiences and perspectives of school children, teachers, village leaders, members of village-level womens groups, journalists, moulavis and monks on religious and ethnic coexistence in the Galle District of Sri Lanka. The comics are introspective, self-critical and reflect multiple experiences of discrimination and communal harmony.

Initiated by the International Centre for Ethnic Studies (ICES) and World Comics India (WCI), this publication is a modest attempt at exploring the potential of innovative media, created by and for the community, as a means of fostering meaningful and productive dialogue across religious and ethnic boundaries.
