Cartoon Exhibition: Just Speak!
3 May, 2022 @ 8:00 am – 20 May, 2022 @ 5:00 pm
Justice for all can only be reached if we have the freedom to express ourselves in fair and peaceful communities that leave no one behind. A focus on justice is necessary in solving all conflicts. Images have the power to carry a message in a clever, funny and informing way, which is exactly what this exposition is about. Ideas about peace and justice from the youngest generation turned into professional cartoons, created by human rights cartoonists from around the world.
From Monday the 2nd of May until Thursday the 19th of May, the Atrium in the City Hall hosts the exposition ‘Just speak!’ by The Next Movement. In its essence lies the voice of youth across the world. By means of a competition, students across both The Hague and the world were asked about their ideas on how to achieve justice in a conflict in their part of the world. What are their thoughts on how to prevent or peacefully resolve this issue? Using their creativity to shape these ideas in the form of a cartoon, their drawings were shared with the professional cartoonist network from The Next Movement. They chose the best, most inspiring ideas and turned them into editorial cartoons.
Hague Justice Week
This exposition is part of the Hague Justice Week 2022, which takes place from the 30th of May until the 3rd of June. Global peace and justice require global collaboration. During The Hague Justice Week, actors of all levels come together, interact and try to find answers to global challenges through the scope of justice.
