This year we laid emphasis on the pressing topic of AI, with our Artficial Idiocy exhibition at the Galway City Museum drawing great crowds.

We also brought more big names than ever before, including Ed Steckley of Mad Magazine fame from the USA and veteran French caricaturist Jean Michel Renault. Old friends Martin Rowson of the UK’s Guardian and Cristina Sampaio of SpamCartoons in Portugal gave us fascinating and hilarious talks, while cartoonist and academic Donal Casey spoke on the representation of Irish people in caricature. Joining us virtually from wartorn Ukraine to discuss the meaningful role that cartoons can play was Vladimir Kazanevsky.

Our featured Irish cartoonist was our youngest one yet – rising star Harry Burton, editorial contributor to the Examiner and winner of second place at this year’s European Cartoon Awards.
