Effective storytelling—in its many forms—is key to social and policy change. Sometimes the best path to follow is a simple visualization of a complex issue, breaking down the core elements that you need your audience to understand and shielding their eyes from the minute details that only the wonkiest among us can fathom. Other times, it is words—spoken, written, animated—that do the trick.
At Aggregate, we are fans of the way that Jay Smooth of Ill Doctrine uses words to share his perspective on progressive social issues: through up close, in your face monologues that come from the heart and are chock full of insight and often a much needed dose of humor.
Thanks, Jay, for the inspiration.
