More than words.



At the culture house there is currently an exhibition on that has received a lot of publicity after what happened in Paris. 

It is work done by a group of international cartoonists.... who have been given refugee status in cities where they can work and live without being afraid of what will happen to them and their families.

I had a quick look today. I did not see any police or security people....

But I think it is an important message, both the info about the artists, and their actual work.

It should be noted that this exhibition was planned long before the events in Paris.

Very interesting. It's so sad that cartoonists have to live in fear for their lives! What a world!

A strange coincidence if this was planned before the Paris events.

But a great theme given those events. Another reminder of the importance of the work from cartoonists and journalists and the dangers they face the world over.

It's peculiar how timing sometimes converges like that.

A place 'where they can work and live without being afraid of what will happen to them'? Good luck with that!

It's a little sad that they live in fear for seeing the funny side of life :(
