Projecte Rosoum, estrategias para un cómic árabe independiente (Rosum project, strategies for an independent Arab comic) addresses the growing phenomenon of Arabic publications for adults that reflect on the political, social and day-to-day reality of the Arab world using a cartoon style. In Barcelona, the project brings together four renowned Arab cartoonists (from Beirut, Cairo, Tunis and Casablanca) so that they can jointly produce cartoons, relate to other agents in the local context and explore strategies for the creation of an artistic network of groups producing comics in Arabic languages.
