Cartooning for Peace (France) and Buni Media (Kenya) launch a programme of civic education using press cartoons with European and African dimensions around the World Press Freedom Day, 3 May 2022, and in the context of the Kenyan elections in August 2022.

In partnership with the French Embassy in Kenya, the EUNIC Kenya network and the European Union in Kenya, Cartooning for Peace and Buni Media organize a series of activities designed for the general public and young people with the presentation of an exhibition at the Alliance Française Nairobi, trainings for educational professionals and regional and international press cartoonists, and discussions, masterclasses and workshops in Nairobi between 5 and 9 May 2022.

The project aims to increase awareness and advocacy to safeguard press freedom and democracy through the following actions:

“Cartooning for Peace and Democracy” Exhibition

7 May – 26 June, Alliance française de Nairobi, free entry

As a time when democracies, all over the world, are weakened by war, populism, disinformation, inequalities, injustices… and even pandemics, this exhibition highlights the power of press cartoons and satire to reflect upon, and remind us all, of the importance of democratic values, freedom of expression, and equality between men and women, to promote peace and respect for human rights. 

The exhibition brings together cartoonists from Kenya, Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Denmark, France and Switzerland. A pedagogical booklet is distributed to education professionals for advocacy programmes in schools and communities in Kenya:
