Graphic Novels Library Malta Business Plan
Mission Education through Comics and Pop Culture.
Aim/Goal • To have a physical library whose collection consists of Graphic Novels / Comics. • To create a space for the sharing of knowledge regarding Pop cultural features using different mediums, offering a space for talks, discussions, presentations and events that promote Pop Culture and other Visual Arts.
Purpose / Description • To promote Literacy and Information Literacy tools through comics and graphic novels. • To promote cultural awareness in other mediums such as Films, Arts and Literature. • To have a place where educators or interested parties can meet and discuss topics of interest that fall under the “Geek” or “Nerd” labels while connecting and engaging people with similar interests. • To create a space to share thoughts. • A library dedicated to the comic as a medium and also help all kinds of visual arts through mutual sharing of ideas. The creation of a body of knowledge which is somewhat lacking on the Maltese islands.
Purpose / Description • A resource to teachers, parents, academics, etc.... aiding people to better understand the comics culture and how they can use comics to educate or teach skills that are essential to a National Literacy framework. • Assist in presentations, discussions and organise workshops to students and educators alike on how comics, films, arts, literature can be used as an educational tool in any related subject. • To promote local artists who want to collaborate with us in creating a market for comics, films and art produced locally.
Why? • In Malta there is no space which is open 24/7, is free to the public where people of a certain interest can meet and discuss their love for comics, films, Tv series, books, etc… • There is a lack of spaces where people working in different fields such as the Visual Arts, Literary Arts, Social environments, etc… can express themselves and find support for their work.
What we offer? • Graphic Novels Library Malta can be the place for all that to happen. • GNLM can be a place where people meet to discuss the same interests while discovering new ones. • GNLM offers a collection of comics/graphic novels for everyone to make use of. • It can be a place where a new form of education can take shape. • Education through the subjects that the students are more familiar with. • A place where an emphasis is put on acquiring skills instead of just knowing things.
Our Service • A collection of material never before collected on the Island of Malta. (Graphic Novels + Literature on different mediums) • A place for socialising and also an educational environment. • Support for presentations, discussions, talks and public lectures open to the general public or specific audiences.
