Patrick Chappatte is a renowned editorial cartoonist and previous TEDGlobal and TEDxParis talker. His work is published in the?International Herald Tribune, the New York Times' global website, the NZZ and Le Temps. ??In 2009, he travelled to Lebanon with the ICRC to get a first-hand look at how cluster munitions continue to maim and kill, long after they were dropped. His visit resulted in a groundbreaking animated documentary called, "Death in the Fields." It can be viewed at www.icrc.org/eng/chappatte ??Featuring excerpts from the film, Chappatte's TEDxRC? talk explores how illustrations provide a powerful way to refocus attention on forgotten crises -- in a world where we are?over-exposed to images of suffering and despair. He also expands on how drawings and animation can take us places and make us feel things that no other story-telling genre can. ??In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
