Video: André-Philippe Côté

Canadian cartoonist André-Philippe Côté talks with Hélène Botreau at the Cartooning for Peace and Health event, March 28, 2012. The interview is in French.

Côté was a pioneer of the comic strip in Quebec in the 1970s and has published a daily cartoon on the front page of Le Soleil since 1997.

Organized by Cartooning for Peace--America and sponsored by Emory's Halle Institute for Global Learning, Cartooning for Peace and Health featured a series of public lectures, classroom discussions, and a gallery exhibition. A diverse lineup of 18 editorial cartoonists from around the world participated in the symposium, which explored the role of the cartoonist in the public sphere, with a special focus on politics, peacemaking, and health.
