MAJESTY workshop: The Power of Images

Images communicate. Images communicate differently depending on context, intention, and reading. In this workshop, participants will explore the power of images to communicate diverse and difficult ideas. Through a series of experiments, participants will develop a vocabularly of images, and engage with two-dimensional image making techniques to give voice to their own visual stories.
