The power of images for transformational change
Images hold immense power. Their universal language can make connections that change ideas and attitudes. But images can equally distort and reinforce negativity.
How can we use potent images to move us towards a fairer, more just and gender-equal society?
Touching on the photographer's work, this talk will explore the situation of image makers and the creative sector today, reflect on what stories and perspectives are being shown, which ones are left out, and discuss how this can and should change. In our hyper-visual society, images have more power than ever to create systematic change and a more equal and inclusive system: how can we make sure we do so?
