“Visual storytelling is a powerful tool for increasing our understanding of social issues, be they in our own backyards or distant lands. Whether you are interested in social, environmental or human rights issues, this webinar workshop will give insights into both challenges and best practices. Through selected case studies, participants will explore past & current trends, voice & participation, and how visual storytelling can bring about change. The session will also provide an opportunity for those planning or working on projects to have expert input into developing projects, including options for detailed post-workshop feedback.”

The workshop will be led and mentored by Robert Godden and facilitated by IPA founder Kevin WY Lee.
