OSTEN’s World Gallery of Cartoons is the one and only event of such provenance in the Republic of Macedonia, the oldest in the Balkan and one of the most long-standing in the world. It was established back in 1969, making artistic forms like cartoon, satiric drawing and comic strips available to the wider audience.
