Next month, Cartoon Movement will be present at the Americas Latin Eco-Festival, an event that aims to strengthen the voice of the Latino community on issues relating to climate change and environmental justice. The festival takes place in Boulder, Colorado (USA) from 11 to 15 September.
Our contribution is an exhibition titled 'Drawing Attention: Cartoons on the Environment'. It will feature 250 cartoons: an exhibit of 50 physical cartoons and an additional digital presentation of 200 cartoons, bringing together perspectives on sustainability, pollution, resource scarcity and social and environmental justice. A lot of the contributing artists come from Latin America, but there is also space for perspectives from the rest of the world.
Featured most prominently will be the graphic work of Cubal artist Alex Falco Chang, whose bold images do not need words to convey a powerful message.
Some of the cartoons that will be on display at the exhbition, by Falco (Cuba), Pedro X. Molina (Nicaragua), and Chubasco (Mexico).
