Host: Cartooning for Peace Swiss Foundation
Location: Victoria Hall
Description: The Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, under the direction of the Dutch conductor Antony Hermus, will perform Ludwig Van Beethoven’s Third Symphony (‘Eroica’), at 8pm. Chappatte and Plantu, both founding members of Cartooning for Peace, will draw live during the 4 movements of the symphony.
The money raised will entirely be donated to the Swiss Foundation support fund created to help and defend cartoonists who are prevented from practicing their art in their countries, who are victims of political witch hunts, imprisonment or intimidation because they give free reign to their work.
