This month's list of art grants, fellowships, and residencies includes 12 previously unlisted opportunities with deadlines in August 2022 through September 13, 2022.
Each installment of our comics series features a different emerging or established cartoonist. For our third comic strip of 2022, Queer Puerto Rican comic artist, flatter, and colorist Nicky Rodriguez tackles reclaiming agency while dealing with chronic pain in her comic, "Reminder to Self."
Hello Barkada hosted comics professionals Jamila Rowser, Regine Sawyer, Amy Chu, Amber Padilla, Dr. Shamika A. Mitchell, Deb Aoki, and Jessica Tseang on panels at Comic-Con International 2022 to consider where comics storytelling can expand and how the industry behind comics creation must change.
Playbacks of our Virtuous Con: Black History Month 2022 panels "We Need the Punk," "Calling Out Colonizer Criticism," and "The Story of STILL..." are now available! Watch 15-minute clips for free and become a Virtuous Con Power Pass Patron to watch them and all of the event's panels in full.

Thanks to the generosity of our readers, patrons, and clients, Hello Barkada will feature more guest contributors in 2022! When you become a Hello Barkada patron or client, you help support independent arts journalism and programming by, about, and for marginalized communities. Be a part of the momentum we're building towards 2023 and consider a contribution, collaboration, and zine purchase today!
Each activity is made to stir curiosity, start conversations, and build connections. No printer? No problem: Printing isn't necessary! These can be written, typed, and colored on in any free PDF editing application.
Our first micro-press effort is a 16-page zine featuring the first print reproductions of our 2021 comics series as well as original written and illustrated works. Profits offset our operations and help us commission artists and writers in 2023. Once 100 copies are sold, profits will also be shared with the cartoonists whose comics are featured in the zine.
