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.
