Hi All

Does anyone have any links or resources they could share for examples or ideas about symbols/cartoons/animations that represent abstract ideas such as:

  • voices
  • ideas
  • listening
  • advocacy
  • sharing
  • participation
  • collaboration
  • knowledge
  • different perspectives (like the elephant from different sides?)
  • group discussion
  • international discussions
  • climate change
  • etc.

Trying not to be country or region specific, any advice would be great (the project is to make an animation around participatory media, indigenous media).
