The high spot of an annual activity that touches everyone (schoolchildren, people with difficulties, book professionals), this completely free event aims to offer a different sort of project, along artistic lines as well as educational, social and civic.
The bd Boum association was formed in Blois in 1984, on the initiative of social workers, teachers and Education Populaire militants. From the start, the association stood out for its educational aims.
The association has developed its activities, setting up the Centre des Ressources Pédagogiques (educational resources). bd Boum has become a vital comic strip player in the Centre region, offering workshops and activities of differing lengths, with the help of writers. The association is also active in the prison system and in hospitals, under urban social cohesion contracts, and a partnership agreement links it to the Lycée Sonia Delaunay in Blois. In 2010, activity intensified with the establishment of BD classes in partnership with the Blois CRJS (youth and sports regional centre).
The operation is also being extended with the BD Centre des Ressources which offers the possibility of renting twenty-five exhibitions and the creation of scenographies for comic strip events all over France.
Since 1998, bd Boum has been developing an editorial project, using comic strips as an information and insertion tool, with publications on various society themes based on personal accounts (e.g.: immigrants, illiteracy...).
