The 1st International Social Cooperative Cartoon Festival – and not just that – is starting on Friday 21/11.

The Festival proceedings commenced through the www.cooplife.org website, our Cooperative's online newspaper, which aims at gathering and disseminating news from around the world relating to Social & Solidarity Economy: from the solidarity actions of cooperatives supporting the miners in Kentucky, USA, and the social cooperatives of Cuba to the cooperatives of Australian fishermen and Palestinian women.

The exhibition will run for 5 days, from Friday 21/11 to Tuesday 25/11, at the Municipality of Halandri Social Service facilities, located on 7 Papagou Street (2nd floor) at the center of Halandri.

The inauguration and award ceremony will take place on Saturday 22/11 at 7:00pm.
