Dr. Monika Zawadzki and Dr. Aleksandra Lukaszewicz Alcaraz (Academy of Art in Szczecin) realized the workshop “Emotions and Ideas Described in Visual Language (Graphic Symbols)” with 19 persons (17 men and 2 women) ages 20-40.

During the workshop each person had to depict two symbols/ideas/concepts (which they had chosen in a lottery) on two papers and give others the opportunity to guess what it means, for example: fear, god, unemployment, and so forth.

Researchers tried to make people express their worldview, being interested to see and to show the participants of the workshop their own perspective, because the externalization of the perception can allow making it conscious -- which helps to grow conscious, responsible citizens.
