The project

ComiX4= Comics for Equality

The ComiX4= Comics for Equality project is based on the need to promote the development of a European society based on respect for fundamental human rights, and to fight against racism, xenophobia and other related forms of intolerance. This is more important than ever due to ongoing European enlargement, and to European countries’ key roles as destinations for migrants from both outside and within other European states. The most effective way of achieving this goal is to promote mutual understanding and dialogue.

The ComiX4= Comics for Equality project aims to foster intercultural dialogue in order to combat racism, xenophobia and discrimination in Europe, with a particular focus on Italy, Bulgaria, Estonia, Romania and Latvia. In order to achieve this aim, the project seeks to involve migrants and second-generation immigrants – often the subjects of discrimination – in the creation of artistic resources – namely comic strips – to be used in combating racism and xenophobia.

The main activities include the ComiX4= Comics for Equality Award (a competition to award the best unpublished comics by authors with migrant backgrounds); the interactive website; an eighty-page catalogue containing the best comics submitted within the award; a “Comics Handbook” for use in conducting informal creative workshops; a travelling exhibition of the comics; and comic strip workshops to be held across Europe.

The project ComiX4= Comics for Equality is led by Africa e Mediterraneo (Italy), in partnership with NGO Mondo (Estonia), the Workshop for Civic Initiatives Foundation (Bulgaria), ARCA (Romania) and Grafiskie stasti (Latvia).

The ComiX4= Comics for Equality project is funded by the European Union – Fundamental Rights and Citizenship Programme – November 2012.
