Venue: Objectifs Centre, Chapel Gallery
This next IPA PLUG & PLAY Session is hosted in partnership with Objectifs and features an exclusive talk and discussion on Visualising Social Stories with Hong Kong based rights advocate Robert Godden.
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 talk will introduce both challenges and best practices.
The Visualising Social Stories series of workshops and seminars are designed by Invisible Photographer Asia and human rights advocate Robert Godden.
