A good editorial cartoon has the power to make you see things in a different light. Cartoons can poke, harass, jab, outrage, infuriate, tickle and enlighten. Cartoons attack arrogance and ignorance, corruption and abuse, expose those who need exposing, defend freedom and even bring about change.
The power of cartoons is the power to make you think. By looking at cartoons from all over the world we can compare different perspectives on peace and justice. Because where you live shapes how you look at the world. That’s why we believe there is more than one truth; to answer the big questions, we must map these truths and use them to start a dialogue. And a striking visual can be a great conversation starter.
