CAIB Media

Stakeholders’ Support key To Success - It is a deliberate and collaborative effort to trigger  voluntary personal actions and catalyze behavior change across African communities on gender violence through aggressive public education, awareness creation and youth engagement/capacity building activities and projects in the context of spreading awareness of the AU Protocol on Women’s rights in Africa; international artists, press cartoonists, illustrators, photographers and cartoon animators in Africa and other parts of the world are deploying comedic art and edutainment to battle gender violence and inequality in Africa, in a global context at the 2nd CARTOON AFRICA INTERNATIONAL BIENNIAL(CAIB) festival hosted by the Edo State Ministry of Arts, Culture and Tourism, in Benin City.

In a presentation at the event opening last Thursday, November 27, 2014, the Executive Director of Partnership for Women and Justice (PW&J), Mrs. Ijeoma Umeh, tasked stakeholders and artists of talent to actively engage in drawing attention to women issues through artistic solutions and sponsorships.

 The PW&J leader said, “I am very glad that this event is holding at the time it is, and I want to use this medium to welcome you all to this august event and I pray that the outcome of this event would go a long way in determining the position of the society with regards to our perception of the arts and in respect of gender perspective. Whatever platform that avails to us as gender advocates we should utilize them, we should deploy them in representing the issues that affect women in the society. Just two days ago was the international day for the elimination of all forms of violence against women, and stakeholders are saying that if you have the opportunity to represent the interest of women, even as individuals, as associations, and as organizations, we should deploy those opportunities critically in raising awareness over the issues that affect women in the society.
