Advocacy through Animation

BY NEIA OMER
@ VOL 29 ON MAY 22, 2016

"When you educate a man, you educate an individual, but when you educate a woman, you educate a generation."

In Advocacy through Animation from PechaKucha Night Atlanta Vol. 29,  Neia Omer tells her story. Animation is a inclusive medium when one is trying to reach a large subset of individuals. What do you do and where do you start if you know absolutely ZERO things about animation? What is your subject matter? Neia Omer's story is a personal journey, a personal goal, a family legacy, and one of animation being the key to her brand of advocacy. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, June 13th, 2016.

Atlanta had its 16th PechaKucha Night this past Sunday, and we've already found a Flickr photoset covering the event -- the low-resolution would indicate that the photos were taken with a mobile phone, but it still gives a nice glimpse at what a PKN in Atlanta looks like.

In "From Billboards to Changed Lives" from PKN Atlanta Vol. 20, Jeff Shinabarger created jobs for them out of what other people thought of as just trash - old billboards.
