Cartooning for Peace is an international network of committed press cartoonists, who fight with humour for the respect of cultures and freedoms.
Press cartoon uses off the wall humour to denounce and to reflect on the world’s current events. We conceive press cartoon as a major and essential tool to build a dialogue between the various cultures and religions.
Our association seeks to promote fundamental freedoms and freedom of expression through laughter, tolerance and respect of diversity. Cartooning for Peace also aims to promote and establish dialogue between drawn opinions throughout the world.
Cartooning for Peace uses the cartoons sent by cartoonists members of the network for exhibitions, teaching materials and website on various themes relating to fundamental freedoms and freedom of expression. Cartooning for Peace regularly offers cartoonists to take part in conferences, debates, workshops in school and prison settings as well as meetings with the public in Europe and around the world.
Cartooning for Peace is committed to keep informed each cartoonist of the network’s current events, of the use of his cartoons and to enhance his editorial work within the network as part of its editorial operations and media.
