This is David Mack’s second visit to Georgia. Last year, the U.S. Embassy invited David Mack for a series of art workshops with disadvantaged youth. While here, he also helped Georgian youth create a comic book called Fatal Error, which helped to raise awareness of social issues and promote STEM education. Fatal Error is an ongoing U.S. Embassy business development and social advocacy project that uses sequential art to reach rural youth and target populations.
