The 9. MBOA BD 2018 annual festival of comic art in Cameroon takes place in Douala from 21.-24. November and in Yaoundé from 28. November to 1 December. The motto of this year’s festival centers on the virtues of multiculturalism, the experience of cultural difference and diversity, and the raise of nationalism and extremism on the local, regional and national levels of the Cameroonian nation-state as well as in the global world. The festival invites comic artists to contribute to the promotion of multiculturalism in a super-diverse society that is in constant transformation and challenged with internal and external crises.
