Visual communication in a digital age

Visual communication in a digital age

Emily Downe will contribute to this Culham St Gabriel’s Trust event on why innovation matters for today’s teachers of religion and worldviews.

You can watch the recording of the event here and the film ‘Nobody Stands Nowhere’ here.

This event on May 12th at 7pm features a conversation with Emily Downe and Jason Ramasami on how animation and illustration can be used as powerful tools for classroom learning. They will share examples of their work and some of the principles around engaging today’s pupils with complex ideas, particularly in religion and worldviews using visual narrative forms. The event will include a showcase of a new animation about the concept of worldview.

Emily Downe is an animation director. She has an MA in Documentary Animation from the Royal College of Art. Alongside working as Creative Designer at Theos, she works independently as an animation director, specialising in documentary short film, and she is a co–director of Studio Desk. Emily has a passion for visual communication; expanding research through visual metaphor and engaging design.

Jason Ramasami is a teacher with 25 years of experience working in secondary schools teaching RE, Media and Art. In addition to this, he has developed as an illustrator and filmmaker with a keen interest in conveying concepts, stories and experiences that bring other perspectives to life for otherwise uninterested audiences. Most recently he has produced work for Oxford University Press, the Bible Society and the Department for Culture Media and Sport.
