Focus comic had a successful community outreach event at FanX Comic Con Salt Lake City. FanX is one of the biggest comic cons in the USA.
Representing Focus was goodwill ambassador Tony Todd, Creator and Artist Yvonne Wan and Main artist and internship coach Douglas Hebert.
Here are 17 interviews with the general public conducted by Yvonne who is also a certified social cultural anthropologist and film ethnographer. Yvonne interviewed the general public with regards to their experiences of meeting Tony Todd our goodwill ambassador and thoughts about Focus comic and why autism awareness is important to them. The films are under a minute each, so you can gain a general overview of what the public consensus is, regarding the community outreach event, book and cause.
Yvonne, Doug and Tony were available in person for the full weekend in Salt Lake City to discuss the project and the issue of autism awareness at depth with the general public. Public engagement is an effective way to raise autism awareness and acceptance.
Thank you to everyone for showing their support, including Tony Todd fans, Comic Fans, the press and media, FanX staff and supporters of the cause.
Thank you Dan Farr and Brian Brandenburg for providing a platform for us to promote Focus comic and autism awareness during autism awareness month. We appreciate their hospitality and support.
