is pleased to present

MigrateursA master class with Tunisian cartoonist _Z_

Leading up to the 2011 Tunisian revolution that toppled Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali's autocratic regime _Z_'s satirical cartoons made him one of the most wanted targets of Tunisia's secret services. He has remained anonymous as he continues denouncing the new government's antidemocratic practices. _Z_'s work also criticizes development practices in his country. In this master class, _Z_ will discuss his works to combat overdevelopment in Tunis and teach participants how to draw a political cartoon.

If you would like to attend this class, please RSVP to Liz Flanagan.

While at Harvard, _Z_ will also be a public talk on November 14th; for more information, click here.

PLEASE NOTE: due to the sensitive nature of _Z_'s anonymity, photography and videography will be forbidden at this event. Anyone attempting to photograph or film this talk will be asked to leave immediately.
