IDEA SEE has expanded its Art for Advocacy program, through the organization of a series of workshops where youth and NGO activists learned how to use the visual language of art and design to communicate their thoughts, messages and positions where it matters, contributing to a healthier, more open and encompassing communities. The 2017 event is to include two workshops via an individually adapted program flow, which are to use comic books, data visualization and stencils as tools for advocacy. The ultimate goal of the program is to support and guide young leaders as they develop further skills in advocacy through art, to build their confidence and clarify individual messages. The program aims to strengthen civil society, with a focus on human rights, youth activists and representatives of youth civil organizations in SEE by providing them new skills for advocacy, but in a very innovative and alternative way of expression.
