Drawing Tells a Better Story

BY RODI ALKADER
@ VOL 19 ON OCT 10, 2015

"We are different, but we have something to share, like all of you ... I think the concept of love or empathy is not based on race or color or gender or religion. We all share this amazing feeling."

One of the biggest stories in 2015 was the migrant crisis from Syria and parts of the Middle East. Kyoto-based researcher, and Syrian national, Rodi Alkader, has been drawing his thoughts on paper for years, but as the crisis unfolded, his drawings became a profound way for him to deal with his emotions. In this very personal presentation, "Drawing Tells a Better Story", from PechaKucha Night Kyoto Vol 19, Rodi shares his family's situation and adds a unique voice to the conversation. This presentation was part of the special PechaKucha Night Huddle held in Kyoto in October 2015. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Friday, November 27th, 2015.
