Partnership with Khartoon Magazine

Cartoon Movement  and Khartoon Magazine are joining forces to spotlight Sudanese cartoonists and shed light on the forgotten war in Sudan through the power of visual storytelling. provides a platform to showcase the unique perspectives of Sudanese artists and their poignant commentary on the ongoing conflict.

We are proud to show the resilience and creativity of Sudanese cartoonists, who continue to use their art as a form of resistance and social commentary amidst being displaced across the lands.

Together, we can amplify marginalized voices, raise awareness of forgotten conflicts, and work towards a more just and equitable world.

This week, we'll showcase some of the powerful cartoons published by Khartoon Magazine.

Cartoons for human rights


In 2018, we did a project together with the United Nations Human Rights Office (OHCHR) and the government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands creating cartoons about the importance of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Out of over 500 cartoons sent in from all over the world, 30 winning cartoons were selected; one for each article of the UDHR. The cartoons were bundled together in a booklet, a visual guide to the UDHR.

At the end of 2023, we were contacted by the Permanent Representation of the Permanent Representation of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the United Nations, the WTO and other organisations in Geneva. As a kick-off for the Kingdom of the Netherlands' three-year membership in the Human Rights Council, they wanted to re-issue and update the booklet. The renewed booklet includes a lot of updated cartoons to reflect more diversity.

It was launched yesterday during the visit of our Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hanke Bruins Slot, at the Human Rights Council in Geneva.
