Cartooning for Peace would like to thank its many partners who enable the organisation to continue its work in support of press cartoons, freedom of expression and press cartoonists around the world:

MGEN has supported the Cartooning for Peace organisation since it was founded, and is committed to defending fundamental freedoms and equal rights, while ensuring that its actions have a resolutely educational dimension.
Support from the French Ministry of Culture enables Cartooning for Peace to develop its educational and editorial activities.
“La France s’engage”, an initiative spearheaded by former French President François Hollande, recognises the most innovative and socially useful projects. In 2017, Cartooning for Peace won the Special Prize of “La France s’engage”. Thanks to this support, Cartooning for Peace is strengthening its educational initiatives in schools, extra-curricular activities and prisons.

Cartooning for Peace is accredited by the French Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MENE2214200A) as an organisation that supports public education. This accreditation is renewed in 2022 for a further 5 years (since 2016). The organisations offer educational activities that complement the school curriculum, in line with school projects, and take part in school life during or outside school hours.
Thanks to the support of the French Ministry of Justice, Cartooning for Peace offers its educational exhibitions in prisons. The organisation is also able to arrange for press cartoonists to come and take part in workshops and debates, helping members of the public who so wish to draw cartoons and caricatures, and providing mediation around the exhibitions.
Thanks to the support of the 11 January Fund set up following the assassination of Samuel Paty, Cartooning for Peace has developed a website, available free of charge to education professionals by registration: www.pedagogie-dessinsdepresse.fr. The aim of the site is to provide resources for teaching through press cartoons and human rights education (in French).

Cartooning for Peace is a signatory of the city’s Plan to Combat Racism, Anti-Semitism and Discrimination.
The town of Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, which witnessed the assassination of Professor Samuel Paty, has been a partner of Cartooning for Peace since the attack. An evening debate was organised in 2021, followed by a residency at the Médiathèque Blaise-Cendrars in 2022-2023.
