Why Choose Visual Stories


  • Single Images (Still photos, paintings, etc) convey strong emotion, a single point or mood 
  • They can speak more loudly than words, especially in this image-centered era
  • Images can show things differently, and show different things. 
  • Easy to place in the landscape for an ongoing presence
  • Terrific way to engage people in a collaborative project (see mnural project examples)

Why Choose Multimedia 


Video brings viewers to the action, to the place central to see and hear. 

Mixing text and image well can amplify the message: two plus two equals far more than four. 

Audio and image complement one another, bringing the viewer close to the teller and to the teller's perspective.

Great way to engage youth
