– Why join Cartooning for Peace as a member cartoonist? –

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 organisation 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.
