The Association for Peace and Human Rights (APDH) in Burundi arranged in cooperation with World Comics Finland a grassroots comics tutor-training workshop in Ngozi in July, 2010. APDH runs a one-year project called: “Towards a culture of democracy in Burundi: local comics on elections and governance.”
The project intends to produce mainly wallposter comics and publish a collection of comics at a later stage. A total of 60 wallposter comics were produced during the workshop in Ngozi.
A Kirundi-language grassroots comics manual and a tutor’s guide were prepared for the workshop and are now available on our website.
