Let's continue another brainstorm session as Visual Peacemakers. This is project #3. You can see previous posts to get a history on what's happening.
I'm re-capping the major themes and project ideas from a previous lengthy discussion. There's 4 project ideas we're covering in 4 different posts.
1. Hardcover Photo Book for Visual Peacemaking by community members
2. Charter for Visual Peace multimedia promo video / photo documentary
3. Visual Peacemaking Presentation to empower individual members
4. eBook "Visual Peacemaking: photography on the healing-edge" (other sub-titles possible)
These projects will complement what we're already doing, so continue to upload your work to the growing visual collection. I think what attracted many of us to IGVP was the idea that we could make a difference together… we have not lost our vision for that!
#3 Project: Visual Peacemaking presentation (already in progress, but brought up a lot in the original brainstorm)
Purpose: To empower members who are ready to speak publicly by giving them resource they need. Also used by Guild & Founders to present IGVP to audiences.
Description: A "sticky" presentation to communicate the What, Why, & How of visual peacemaking, including a call to embrace socially conscious image-viewing by utilizing the Charter for Visual Peace. Slides in Keynote / PPT / (Browser?) for a speaker to utilize. Include "Take the Journey" video to inspire & inform audience. Include project #2 Charter for Visual Peace multimedia video / photo doc
Platform: Mostly offline presentations given by Founders, Guild, and select VPC members. Members up to the task of public communicating, and given the venue, could submit a request to present. IGVP website & social media could report news of these events.
Logistical notes: None.
Point person: Mario
Members involved: VPC members with the venue & readiness for public communicating. Guild can present and offer input into the presentation (Matt Brandon already is). Mario & Logan will present IGVP at various venues. Some bi-lingual members can create a version in their own language.
Results: We are many, in many places. We'd advocate our cause on the ground in many places to a variety of audiences. We'd empower members to present Visual Peacemaking. We'd advance IGVP and bring exposure to the cause.
Would you use this? Where?
What do you think about making this available to anyone who wants to present Visual Peacemaking?
Are you bilingual and ready to create a version in your language?
Do you think this is a good idea, and how can we make it better?
