Social media use for cartoonists training is an initiative of Wole Soyinka Centre for Investigative Journalism (WSCIJ) designed to help cartoonists understand various social media tools and apply the knowledge to better engage on the issues their cartoons represent. It is a part of WSCIJ’s Art of the Cartoon: Imaging Social Realities programme whose vision is to raise discussion on the status of cartooning in Nigeria’s news media by developing the capacity of reporters in the genre to deepen their culture of satirical, investigative and humorous cartoons.Click here to apply
