Dhenkanal: A two-day cartoon workshop will be held at the Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC), Dhenkanal on May 21 and 22. The workshop is a one-of-a-kind effort to bring cartoonists and interested students together on a single platform.

Registration for participation closes on May 18.

In this workshop, the participants will get to learn the fundamentals of cartooning- from drawing to building a specific narrative. They will learn to ideate and create cartoons.

The workshop will be mentored by Debasis Singh, who works as an editorial cartoonist for the popular Odia daily “Sambad,” and T Nandeshu Rao, editorial cartoonist for “The Prameya” newspaper.

Speaking about cartoons as a visual medium of communication, Regional Director, IIMC, Dhenkanal , Prof. (Dr.) Mrinal Chatterjee said, “Cartoons have always had a profound impact on the mind space of the masses as well as intellectuals. In form and content, it can be funny, entertaining, bold, blunt, and provocative. Cartoons have generally been used as a medium of satire. However, it can be extremely useful as a communication tool to frame issues and change behaviour.”

This is the second time that IIMC Dhenkanal is hosting a cartoon workshop in close collaboration with professional cartoonists that delves into the art of cartooning as a potential medium of visual communication.

On successful completion of the workshop, participants will be provided with a certificate from IIMC, Dhenkanal.
