Visual Storytelling: A Way to Elevate Communities
The social media explosion has instantly turned all of us into storytellers. We all try to tell stories that matter to us.
People and communities matter as they shape the world we live in. The stories we share create narratives that have the power to educate and elevate the profile of people and communities.
Through imagery, the stories of people can be celebrated and amplified to create a nuanced context for the narrative.
Storytelling plays an integral part in understanding our human experience. How we transfer information about culture, circumstances, and experiences from one person to the next is crucial to bringing awareness to the nuances of humanity. Our panel explores the visual mediums through which we share our diverse stories across the world to shape narratives.
