Geraardsbergen. Amnesty International is organizing a Human Rights cartoon expo in collaboration with the city library. This cartoon expo is free to visit and runs from October 3 to October 30 during library opening hours. The Human Rights Cartoon Expo is a collection of forty international cartoons that sharply and idiosyncratically portray the theme of human rights. The cartoons were selected from past editions of the ‘Olense Kartoenale’.
Since 2009, the organizers, together with Amnesty International, have been awarding a special prize on the theme of human rights. Ten years of human rights cartoons have now resulted in an intriguing exhibition with cartoons from all over the world. Each artist illustrates his own unique view on diverse human rights themes such as freedom of the press, healthcare, arms trade, discrimination and poverty.
On Thursday 20 October at 8 pm, Wies De Graeve, chairman of Amnesty International Flanders, will come to the library with a presentation on human rights.
