Communication can contribute to the formation of new visions and the construction of a more diverse and inclusive collective imagination.
The seminar starts from the premise of the need for “other views”, other ways of understanding the world in which the knowledge of excluded groups is incorporated, in which life and people are placed in the centre, in the respect for nature and the promotion of values related to democracy, solidarity, justice, respect for human rights.
In this seminar projects and experiences have been presented that from the theatre, cinema, press, social networks or art generate new languages in an innovative, creative, transgressor way contributing to the creation of alternatives and change proposals. The seminar is conceived as a space for learning and exchange.
It is aimed for all those professionals who work in the field of education and communication and who try to build a powerful and attractive story that challenges economic and gender inequality, injustice, the use of force, authoritarianism and all those values on which the hegemonic, exclusionary and dehumanized discourses are based, which in the end, legitimize the world we live in.
The seminar objective is to explore the educational and communicative challenges in order to build new transforming stories, looking for synergies and complementarity among the multiple initiatives that are being carried out.
In this course, we have learned to analyse images and messages based on Schwartz’s “framed” theory and value system. So innovative images and messages about positive peace and the values associated with it, such as solidarity, dialogue, or dynamism can be created tools and guidelines have been given. On the other hand, there have been visual and artistic experiences about the contribution of women to the construction of peace and justice.
Recipients: Social Sciences, Law, Humanities, Psychology, Social Work, or related disciplines, graduates, students, educators, graphic designers, communication managers of NGDOs, women’s organizations and social organizations in general.
