Iconic images tell the story of a moment, but more importantly, they make an abstract issue immediate and concrete. When it comes to complex social issues, statistics explain a problem but images allow us to feel. They do more than raise awareness--they spark action from individuals and policymakers because they reach us in a way we cannot forget. Elodie Mailliet Storm, CEO of CatchLight, a leading media organization leveraging the power of images to inform, connect and transform communities, will share how visual storytelling establishes common ground for our society and democracy as images allow us to share in the emotions, stories and values that bind us. With them, history becomes easier to access; we are more engaged.
