There has never been a movement for social change without art and visual communications being central to that movement. Graphics are powerful living reminders of struggles for worldwide peace and justice. Favianna will discuss the process of developing art in collaboration with community-based organizations. She will also discuss steps for designing visually engaging posters for social justice campaigns.
