Last week, we (in the form of CM editors Tjeerd Royaards and Emanuele Del Rosso) were at the International Journalism Festival in Perugia to give a workshop about the power of cartoons. If you weren't there and didn't watch the livestream, you can watch the recording of the event:
In true workshop style, we didn't just talk about cartoons, but we challenged the audience to make a cartoon themselves. We gave them the assignment to come up with a cartoon featuring Putin and a tank, giving pointers on how to come up with the best visual.
In addition to the workshop, we also did some live drawing each day, showing festival attendants how cartoonists work and talking to them about the importance of cartoons. As we've said before on multiple occasions, we strongly believe that editorial cartoons are an essential part of the journalistic landscape. To that end, we think cartoons should have a place at every edition of IJF in one form or another and we aim to be there next year as well. Here below some more impressions of our session at the festival.
