The exhibition Facing the Climate has been developed by the Swedish Institute, produced by the Embassy of Sweden in Dar-es-Salaam Tanzania and Buni Media.
idea of this exhibition was initiated to coincide with the 2009 United
Nations Copenhagen Climate change conference when 25 Nordic cartoonists
interpreted the subject. Since then Swedish cartoonists have been
collaborating with international colleagues around the world to offer
amusing and alarming view on climate change related issues from
different local perspectives.
The exhibition in Tanzania brings together Swedish, Tanzanian, Kenyan and Ethiopian
cartoonists. Using the power of humor and satire, these cartoonists
invite the public to reflect upon the challenges of climate change and
encourage responsible actions.
Opening of the exhibition Facing the Climate in Tanzania took place at Creative Arts Department (University of Dar-es-Salaam) on 26 may 2017.
