CRNI’s regional representatives provide our organisation its eyes and ears as well as much of its heart.
Timely and accurate information is the lifeblood of CRNI’s work. To that end, we maintain a list of cartoonists and cartoon experts who on a voluntary basis provide us with information from the field and assist in the verification of reports as well as the dissemination of updates to cartoonists in their region.
For their privacy and security we do not list them publicly but the majority are either past clients of CRNI or individuals who have otherwise experienced censorship, harassment, violence or forced displacement because of their work.
In addition to representatives with knowledge of cartooning in specific geographical regions we have a number of “at large” reps with additional specialisations. Of particular concern are groups traditionally underrepresented or poorly served by cartoonists’ organisations. For example, those cartoonists with a LGBTQIA+ identity.
We thank our regional representatives for their effort, energy and enthusiasm.
