International Cartoon Exhibition on Migrant Crisis Unveiled in Sofia
An exhibition of cartoons from around the world exploring different aspects of the migrant crisis was inaugurated at the National Palace of Culture on Monday.
It includes works of cartoonists from more than 50 countries.
Themed "Where is Europe? A Journey of Hope", it is being shown in a number of countries which migrants and refugees went through on their way to Europe. After Germany and Kosovo, it arrived in Bulgaria's capital, the next destination being the Turkish cities of Izmir, Istanbul and Ankara.
Erdogan Karayel, a German-based Turkish cartoonist, was the driving force behind the project, according to the Bulgarian organizers from the Union of Bulgarian Artists, the Bulgarian Red Cross, the UNHCR, and the State Agency for Refugees.
He launched a worldwide contest to select the best cartoons. A vast part of works sent to him came from Iran, he says.
The exhibition can be seen at the National Palace of Culture by August 05.
