TALK: Images, Art and Animation in Public Health

Wednesday: 27 February 2019 at 6.30pm, Free to Members (£5.00 Guests)

Images, Art and Animation in Public Health by George McBean

‘In the beginning was the word… and while the word was being argued over, the

power of the visual image was used to spread knowledge throughout the land.’

(Imagined from the earliest Bible, before edits.)

This is an illustrated talk about the use of visual images by UNICEF during the Child

Survival Revolution 1982-1990 and the more recent developments in animated films

used in Pubic Health.


George McBean has worked over 36 years designing and developing visual

communication initiatives that provide pre-literates and remote communities with

health information.
