Together with the The Netherlands Consulate General in Miami and the Florida International University we are organizing a series of cartoon workshops on a range of topics, including migration and the environment.
The workshops are given by Garrincha and challenge students to think about problems and potential solutions visually, resulting in cartoon ideas or sketches that our uploaded to our user newsroom. The best ideas are selected by our cartoonists and made into professional cartoons.
Here are some examples from the project:
Student idea: Doctor driving past an immigrant yelling: 'You are stealing our jobs!'. The immigrant looks blindly as he cuts someone's lawn.
Sketch by Josh Eisenberg, cartoon by Gezienus Bruining.
You can see many more cartoons in the project newsroom.
The end of the project will be marked by an exhibition of the best cartoons and the ideas they are based upon, which will take place in Miami in May 2017.
