Project name:

Sarah Glidden: Iraqi Refugees in Syria

Project description:

Sarah Glidden’s excellent piece of comic journalism was originally published on Cartoon Movement in 2011 when hundreds of thousands of Iraqis sought refuge in Syria. Look out for how she changes perspectives, moves from personal stories to the wider context, and shows how an organisation is making a difference. While you read it, imagine the calls to action that could be interspersed in the account. Consider how the watercolour style might stand out in the endless feed of social media. How might something like this be integrated into advocacy or fundraising campaigns?
