Exercise 2: Protesting in different languages
This exercise focuses on the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement and the importance of languages in its spread across the globe. Have a look at the next pictures taken at BLM demonstrations worldwide and guess what language is being used in each placard.
Now, click on the picture that you find most thought provoking.
Finally, and based on the idea of multiple languages as way of advancing a cause internationally, think of a global issue you feel strongly about and device a visual strategy to convey some key messages. Images should be accompanied by text which needs to be translated in at least five different languages.
