As editor Jennifer Shepherd writes, the world is more complex:
While we may address different topics, we share one thing in common: a learning opportunity.
It is this: to learn to surface the wisdom hiding within us and between us and connect it with what we already know. By making the invisible visible, we can express, touch, and otherwise explore ideas and relationships until we discover the missing links in our understanding and wisely choose what to do next. This step could be to form or deepen relationships with others, to coordinate or harmonize our actions, or—like a jigsaw puzzle—to join pieces of information into a cohesive picture of the whole.
Find out more how storyboards, portraits, and visual explanations can help us work for a better world in Jennifer’s chapter. This excerpt from Drawn Together Through Visual Practice is available in full text and PDF.
