If you are in The Hague in the coming weeks, go check out our cartoon exhibition Just Speak! From May 3 until May 20 the exhibition can be seen in the Atrium of the City Hall.
Afghan cartoonist Hossein Rezaei spoke at the opening of the exhibition on World Press Freedom Day.
Justice for all can only be reached if we have the freedom to express ourselves in fair and peaceful communities that leave no one behind. A focus on justice is necessary in solving all conflicts. Images have the power to carry a message in a clever, funny and informing way, which is exactly what this exposition is about. Ideas about peace and justice from the youngest generation turned into professional cartoons, created by human rights cartoonists from around the world.
Tjeerd Royaards and Lucinda Miedema from Cartoon Movement and The Next Movement.
Visit the exhibition to see the voice of youth across the world. This exhibition presents an overview of various education projects we have done through the years. By means of a competition, students at schools all over the world were asked about their ideas on how to achieve justice in a conflict in their part of the world. What are their thoughts on how to prevent or peacefully resolve this issue? Using their creativity to shape these ideas in the form of a cartoon, their drawings were shared with the professional cartoonist network from The Cartoon Movement. They chose the best, most inspiring ideas and turned them into editorial cartoons.
