In September 2014 a referendum will be held in Scotland. The question put to voters will be: “Should Scotland be an independent country?” The answer will be of great interest to citizens across the UK, Europe and the world.
2014 is also the 15th anniversary of the Scottish Cartoon Art
Studio. We would like to invite cartoonists everywhere to contribute to a new exhibition examining the issues raised by the referendum. In particular we are seeking work on the following topics:
Perceptions of Scotland and her current relationship with the rest of the UK
Important figures in the debate: politicians, artists, commentators
Scotland’s independence movement compared with others around the globe, for example in Catalonia or Quebec
The crucial issues at stake: EU membership; national debt; North Sea oil; nuclear weapons etc.
We welcome cartoon artwork of all kinds: editorial and political cartoons, caricatures and strips, published or unpublished.
It is proposed that the exhibition will be shown in two locations. Firstly in Le Centre Permanent du Dessin de Presse et d’Humour, St.Just le Martel, in the spring of 2014 and secondly in the Provand’s Lordship, a historic medieval house and the oldest in the city of Glasgow, during the weeks before and after the referendum.
If you are interested in contributing work to the exhibition e-mail us at the address below with an attachment of the cartoon(s) you would like us to consider for inclusion.
MEDIA: all welcome, but please email a scanned copy before sending any original drawing
