The Arts & Civics Table (TACT) in collaboration with the Cartoonists Association of Nigeria(CARTAN) has kicked off a cartoon campaign against the ongoing killings and violence in the country.

The campaign is tagged #DrawingBlood, and it involves cartoonists and poets sharing cartoons and poems condemning the loss of lives in the nation.

The campaign will take place over the next 6 months, and will lead up to the Nigerian Satire Festival in November.

The #DrawingBlood campaign will promote artists and cartoonists utilizing RED as the main colour theme in their work. The campaign will also feature satirical art works in other formats.

Cartoonists and other satirists are encouraged join in this campaign by using the colour RED in their work from today, and by posting their cartoons online and offline using the hashtag #DrawingBlood.

It is our way of saying “We have had enough of bloodshed in Nigeria.”
