Cartooning for Peace and Democracy Exhibition

May 7 @ 8:00 am - May 29 @ 5:00 pm

Featuring press cartoonists from Kenya, Sudan, Tanzania, Denmark, France and Switzerland, France, Denmark

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 project is supported by the Embassy of France in Kenya, Eunic Kenya, the European Union Delegation in Kenya, Hanns Siedel Stiftund and UNESCO, among others.  It has also received exceptional support within the framework of the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union.    EUNIC — European Union National Institutes for Culture — is Europe’s network of national cultural institutes and organisations, with 36 members from all EU member states and associated countries. Eunic Kenya aims to foster cultural exchanges and cooperation between Europe and Kenya; support the development of skills in the arts and culture sector within Kenya and connect the Kenyan arts and culture sector with Europe.

Dans une époque où les démocraties sont affaiblies partout dans le monde à cause de la guerre, du populisme, de la désinformation, des inégalités, des injustices … et même des pandémies, cette exposition souligne le pouvoir de la caricature et de la satire pour nous faire réfléchir et nous rappeler l’importance des valeurs démocratiques, de la liberté d’expression, et de l’égalité homme-femme, pour encourager la paix et le respect des droits humains.
