Unlearning intollerance…




Wellington, New Zealand

While walking along the street here yesterday I chanced upon a compelling traveling exhibit—Cartooning for Peace. Conceived by the French cartoonist Plantu, Cartooning for Peace is an initiative born on 16 October 2006 at the UN Headquarters in New York. Twelve of the most renowned political cartoonists from all over the world participated in a two-day conference to help us “Unlearn intolerance”… the conference was accompanied by an exhibition… and a movement was born. Learn more about Cartooning for Peace here, and click on “gallery” to see a wide range of contributions from cartoonists around the world.

Cartoon images shown above: from New Zealand, Turkey, and France.
