In line with this determined need, our project will handle the problems through Caricature. As it is known, Caricature is a literary art which is one of the sub-branches of painting. Caricature, which is defined as an exaggerated, thought-provoking and funny painting by focusing on all kinds of events related to human and society, is an important type of painting that produces both funny and critical works.
Considering its historical past, it can be said that cave paintings in Paleotic, Mesolithic and Neolithic periods constitute the source of this art. With the Renaissance (rebirth) movement, it started to develop by gaining a new identity. Today, caricature has become an art that is drawn in almost every country and has a large number of readers.

Our aim with this project:

- To create a sense of self-efficacy and self-respect in young people by accepting the ideas, thoughts and feelings they reflect in the caricature unconditionally,
- To revive interests that have become stagnant due to the constraints of the pandemic process,
- To break the traumatized effect by making them realize that they have common or similar feelings and thoughts, to weaken the feeling of loneliness, to provide emotional solidarity,
