Visual Storytelling and Public Diplomacy
The SeenFire Foundation, a visual storytelling platform established by USC Master of Public Diplomacy alum Christoph A. Geiseler, recently completed a tour in India. The organization helps embassies and community activists create one-minute videos on targeted themes such as gender rights, environmentalism and entrepreneurism. The video below, made by two students at a workshop hosted at the U.S. Consulate in Kolkata, India, raise awareness about human-trafficking. This innovative storytelling platform is a powerful example of how public diplomacy can help facilitate cross-cultural dialogue and digital engagement.
