A speech and image exercise

2 hours
different narratives, media literacy,image analysis , perception capacity
Α3 papers, markers, printed photos

The participants work in pairs. They sit with their backs touching without visual contact. One of them has the role of the ‘narrator’ and a photograph with an intercultural subject is given to them. The other one has the role of the ‘painter’ and a blank page and colorful markers are given to them. The aim is for the ‘narrator’ to describe as precisely as possible what they see in the photo and for the ‘painter’ to paint it. At the end of this exercise the pairs compare the photo with the painting. One of the interesting outcomes of this is to see how what one described is different to what the other perceived.
