Cartoonists – The Foot Soldiers of Democracy

September 18, 2015 in General


Twelve political cartoonists from around the world discuss a job that requires humour, perseverence and, in many countries, courage in the face of censorship (or worse).

The screening of Stephanie Valloatto’s film “Cartoonists – The Foot Soldiers of Democracy” will be followed by a panel discussion. At the time of writing, three panellists have been confirmed: Dr. Tim Benson, leading political cartoonologist; Agnieszka Kolek, awarded the title of Polish Woman of the Year 2013 in the UK for co-organising and curating Passion for Freedom London Festival. Agnieszka survived the Copenhagen terrorist attack earlier this year; Rachel Alcock from Amnesty International.

This event will take place at The Mall Galleries, London, on 24th September from 7 – 10pm.

More details can be found on the Eventbrite site.

  1. Excellent to finally see this. It caused a very heated debate after too.It’s worth seeking out the film if you get a chance. Quite surprised at how few cartoonists were in attendance.It’s made me want to do some more challenging cartoons…just off to do something really angry about wheelie bins!
