New Cartoonist: Chad Crowe

Freedom from Generation to Generation

In February 2011, we ran the very first special project on Cartoon Movement. The project was titled 'Freedom Worldwide', asking cartoonists to draw different perspectives on freedom. Out of all the pitches, a number of cartoons were selected and used by the National 4 and 5 May Committee,  an organization responsible for Dutch Liberation Day, which takes place on May 5th each year. The cartoons (which you can see in this slideshow) were used in publications throughout the Netherlands to remind the Dutch how precious freedom is.

For the next Liberation Day (May 5th 2012), we have been asked to set up a new cartoon project. This year's theme is freedom from generation to generation, and it invites you to think about your concept of freedom, which was passed on to you by the previous generation, and is also influenced by your experiences. In turn, you will pass on your concept of freedom to the next generation, contributing to the evolving meaning of freedom. But, although the concept of freedom may change with the times,  its importance and urgency should never be forgotten. 

The special newsroom for this project is already full of great cartoons on the subject. The project is only visible to registered users, so if you were looking for a good excuse to sign up, this is it!
