Drawn & Quarterly: creatively supporting RAVEN
We would like to send a big THANK YOU to Drawn and Quarterly for donating $1000 to RAVEN in October 2020. They have also committed to donating annually to support Indigenous legal challenges. We are grateful for their support!
“Recently, D+Q has asked ourselves what it means to have a land acknowledgement on our website and spoken at events. As part of this reflection, we decided that we will donate annually to RAVEN Trust, a registered charity that raises legal defence funds to assist Indigenous Peoples who enforce their rights and title to protect their traditional territories.”Drawn & Quarterly
Drawn and Quarterly is an internationally renowned publishing company working with some of the world’s best cartoonists. They have published many North American luminaries of the medium including Adrian Tomine, Lynda Barry, Daniel Clowes, Chris Ware, Kate Beaton, Chester Brown, and Seth, as well as international authors including Tove Jansson (Finland); Guy Delisle (France); Tom Gauld (UK); Astrid Lindgren (Sweden); Yoshihiro Tatsumi (Japan); Rutu Modan (Israel); Shigeru Mizuki (Japan); and many more cartoonists from across the globe. The company’s dedication to high production values, editorial integrity, and artistic autonomy has led to it being described by Time as “the most elegant comics publisher in North America.”
On their website they state “We encourage all organizations and people with means to donate, and would like to point that people can also donate Aeroplan miles to RAVEN Trust to help members of different Nations and their legal teams get to court to stand in defence of their land, water, and traditional way of life.”
