Cartooning for Peace in Ivory Coast!

From March 16 to 18, Grand-Bassam becomes the comics and press cartoons capital city, celebrating the ninth art in all its dimensions. For this occasion, Cartooning for Peace joins Tache d’encre, the association of Ivorian cartoonists which organizes every two years Cocobulles, the Comics and press cartoons International Festival of Grand-Bassam.
