About Freedom

KazanevskyMay 5th is Liberation Day in the Netherlands, the day the Dutch celebrate their freedom. Every year, we partner with different organizations to create cartoons on peace and freedom.

This year, Cartoon Movement is partnering with film festival About Freedom, taking place on May 5th in Breda, the Netherlands. In the run-up to the festival, we're asking our cartoonists to illustrate five perspectives on freedom:

Imprisoned by fear of crime/criminality.

The meaning of freedom becomes truly apparent when you experience oppression.

Freedom is living without fear of attacks or arrests.

A traumatic experience can keep you captive long after you we're subjected to the experience.

Your own problems in life can get in the way of your freedom.

Check out all the submissions in our project newsroom. Selected cartoons will be published in Dutch newspaper BN/De Stem on Saturday May 4.
