Jim Lockey is an artist, educator and runs the Mobile Comics Factory project. The MCF provides free comic book making workshops in public spaces, operating from a tricycle that has been converted into a mobile arts centre.

Working primarily with children and teens, the project uses drawing and storytelling to awaken potential and give young people a voice in their communities. MCF travels to schools, youth clubs and parks to meet young people in their own space. MCF partners with Folkestone’s local artists, providing a dynamic library of comics and zines and allowing Folkestone’s amazing creative community to inspire the next generation.
