In 2006, following the Danish Cartoon controversy, an organization was founded called Cartooning For Peace. Its members seek to increase dialogue through cartoons about global issues, and foster communication among cartoonists and the public about the art form and its responsibilities. Since then, the world has witnessed cartoons at the center of even more death and destruction. What is the role of the editorial cartoonist, and is freedom of expression under attack? How do cartoons cross borders and what exactly is their power?
Join us for celebration of the tenth anniversary of Cartooning for Peace with a discussion of these timely issues by four cartoonist members of the organization, moderated by the Director of CFP:
Ann Telnaes, Editorial cartoonist for the Washington Post. USA
Nicolas Vadot, Editorial cartoonist for Le Vif/L’Express, L’Echo. Belgium
Patrick Chappatte, Editorial cartoonist for International New York Times, Le Temps. Switzerland
Jeff Danziger, Editorial cartoonist with the New York Times Syndicate. USA
Liza Donnelly, Editorial cartoonist for The New Yorker and CBS News. USABuy tickets/get more info now
