BongoToons, 01-09-2003

A new virtual exposition of cartoons from East Africa on the lovely BongoToons site! As we reported already in our review of World Comics, cartoonists can have a lot of influence. BongoToons shows who the cartoonists are and tells more about the long tradition of the Tanzanian comic strips. The site is set up like a Tanzanian tabloid and is bilingual (English/Dutch). The cartoons and comic strips are also shown in Swahili. New work that has not previously been published is regularly added from Dar es Salaam.
BongoToons is produced by the Foundation Africaserver in collaboration with PACT (The Popular Association of Cartoonists in Tanzania). The exhibition is made possible by a contribution from Hivos.
