Advocacy through Animation
"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.
