The cartoon contest

Check out the results from the Cartoon contest below!!

Together with the artists of Frikomic we kick off a youth programme with youth across Cuba on June 3rd!

In this youth programme we focus on:

(1) supporting interested youth in developing their cartoon skills. We look at the difference between a cartoon and editorial cartoons, where the power of the idea is central.

(2) Using cartoons as a tool for social empowerment and dialogue. We invite youth across Cuba to sketch about their ideas of the future. Their sketches/cartoons will be presented in an exhibition in November 2021 and shared with the world!

Workshop december 2020

Our Cuban Cartoonist Miguel Morales Madrigal gave a workshop demonstrating his techniques, and told his story about what it means to him to be a cartoonist!

In Cuba we work together with talented cartoonists such as Ares, Miguel Morales Madrigal, but also with a group of facilitators – Frikomic – who are artists that also want to inspire and empower youth in Cuba with cartoon art!
