About this Event

Join acclaimed illustrator and political cartoonist Gado as he discusses the importance of questioning through art.

Vancouver Film School is proud to welcome Godfrey Mwampembwa (aka Gado) to our Online Industry Talks. Gado is an award-winning editorial cartoonist for the East African Standard in Nairobi, Kenya, and the most syndicated political/editorial cartoonist in East and Central Africa. His works have also been published in Nation (Kenya), Le Monde and Courrier International (France), Deutsche Welle (Germany), and The Guardian (UK), among others. He is the co-founder and executive chairman of Buni Media, an independent multimedia company based in Nairobi. A classical animation alumnus from Vancouver Film School, Gado is also the creator and producer of the weekly satirical puppet show, The XYZ Show.

Register now to join the online audience and connect with Gado as he discusses how the techniques he learned at VFS have stuck with him as an illustrator, how artists can use their talent and their art to drive positive social change, and the importance of global connections and giving back.
