Over the past seven years, Visualizing Palestine’s work has been built around the challenge of finding effective ways to educate and engage a diverse range of audiences on the issue of Palestine. Its products take the form of visual communication tools, and sometimes the nature of these tools varies to bring the same message to different audiences. This session will explore the trajectory of VP’s projects over time, including some new projects in progress, and will explore the impact of various tools on different mindsets and communities.
