Those who may not have had the chance to view the Cartoons for Freedom exhibition, on at the Franco-Namibian Cultural Centre (FNCC) Gallery, has only time until tomorrow when it closes.
The exhibition is insightful in offering an understanding of how freedom of speech and artistic expression can be used all around the world to foment a social and political debate. It is a collection of fifty cartoonists from 45 nationalities that recreate what freedom of expression actually means through different topics such as corruption, women’s rights, climate change and racism. Cartoonists are from countries such as South Africa, Kenya, Cuba, Canada and Burundi.
FNCC’s communication officer, Alexandrine Guinot, says the exhibition is intended to raise public awareness to the World Day for International Justice and to the attacks which were targeted at the French editorial board of Charlie Hebdo in January 2015. “Join us for this informative exhibition,” she invites.
