New Yorker's Liza Donnelly: Drawing Disruption
Recording: New Yorker's Liza Donnelly: Drawing Disruption, Mar 8, 2019


Everyone is shouting, the Internet is loud, overflowing with opinion and anger. A New Yorker editorial cartoonist and writer for decades, Liza will explore satire in the Age Of Trump and examine humor's role in disrupting- now and in the past- and what can be learned from anger. Using her new form of digital storytelling, called visual journalism, she will explain what it is, and walk the audience through how the unique skills of a cartoonist can become useful tools for all. Throughout the talk she will draw digitally onstage, in real time and transmitting to screen, allowing for understanding of the power of the act of drawing and cartooning. Liza will exlore how creative innovativation can help us be more human; and globally change the world through humor.
