In this year's edition, the event takes place between the Centro Cultural Camões and Belas Shopping and takes place under the theme 'Blue Economy'. The organization remains in charge of Estúdio Olindomar. The participation of several national artists, also involved in the organization, is confirmed, such as Tché Gourgel, Olímpio de Sousa, Nelo Tumbula, Machai Ferreira, Altino Chindele and Lindomar de Sousa. Joining the Angolan names are international artists such as Lúcio Oliveira and Rafael Coutinho (Brazil) and Moiyola Boyka and Jéremie Nsingi (DRC).
As usual, the event will feature an exhibition of cartoons and comics, debates, sale and book and magazine autograph sessions, exhibition of animated films, lectures and live caricature sessions.
Bringing together cartoonists, cartoonists, illustrators and animators, professionals, amateurs and fans annually, the success of Luanda Cartoon is reflected in the public's adherence and in the recognition of the respective brand.
The project arose from an initiative by artists who, in the late 1990s, held some comic book exhibitions in galleries in Luanda. This movement, which attracted more practitioners and the need to share this art form with the world, led to greater organization and dynamism of more exhibitions.
