Whether on screens or in the streets humans reactions, on an instinctive level, come from what we see. So why does so much of what we see at protests, on flyers or in social media look the same? We’ve all seen powerful examples of politically minded photography, graphic design and illustration that are truly inspiring. You can do it too!

The movements and moments that make a difference are built on imagery that connects with the people it seeks to mobilize. Understanding how images work is the first step to applying powerful visual language to your campaigns. The imagery we use to communicate our campaigns doesn't have to be the most polished but it does have to be strategic.

In this session we will examine iconic imagery, and and help you apply these strategies regardless of your artistic skill (or lack thereof).
