Coming Home is an exhibition of life stories told through unique comic and cartoon-based artwork produced by veterans alongside Arts in Health organisation Re-Live, comic artists and Cardiff University researchers. 

Captured online during the Covid pandemic, a group of veterans shared their stories and insight into rarely discussed aspects of their experience. Veterans were supported to share and adapt their often traumatic narrative, and work with a professional cartoonist to create a finished story.
