United Sketches is an International Organization supporting freedom of expression on a global scale. It is the most pressing issue is to defend freedom everywhere, especially that of expression. This is the commitment to which many activists, journalists and cartoonists have dedicated their life.
Criticizing power is our responsibility. United Sketches has three objectives:
- to promote Freedom of Expression, ensuring that everyone can work and express themselves by all means available. The risk is always there that the cartoonists, feeling threatened, will begin to censor themselves. For fear of losing their jobs, of getting fired or worse. Self-censorship is insidious.
- For this, the second and crucial objective is to give visibility to cartoonists in exile: It protects those who draw and their work.
- To Create a bridge between Political cartoon as a very vivid contemporary art and art institutions, museums, galleries, artists residencies etc.
