“What is a press cartoon?”, “Freedom of Expression”, “Can we laugh at everything?, “Cartoons and religion”,”censorship”, “Internet”, “racism”, ” Middle East”, “Children in Conflict”, “Women’s Rights” and “Environment”: these 11 topics are displayed on kakemonos in a simple and efficient way.
The exhibition has been seen and studied by more than 25,000 students since March 2013, and has also resulted in several major educational projects, such as the Cartooning for Peace tour in the Academy of Nancy (January to March 2015) where “Cartooning for Peace” was presented to the Regional Center of Pedagogical Documentation (CRDP) : more than 800 students visited the exhibition.
