Fragile Perspectives: Using Narrative to Access Global Health Challenges

Narrative has been the cornerstone of shared knowledge for all of mankind – in it, we share and shift and frame perspectives not otherwise understood. We invite you to challenge your own perspectives by briefly taking on the voices of those often unheard. With graphic novels, poetry, and short stories, we hope to not only engage you in the vulnerable settings so many in our global community live through, but also demonstrate the various methods through which those voices (including your own) can be shared. Participants will become the voices of these works, followed by reflective discussions and writing or drawings of your own imagination.
