Generating the dialogue with visual journalism

There is an important difference between discussion and dialogue. A discussion is an exchange of arguments. People disagree and are there is friction. Dialogue is the next step: once people have agreed to disagree, they can formulate a central question. They don’t have an answer to it, in fact, there might not even be an answer, but there is an exchange of ideas instead of arguments.

It is our aim to get to that stage with our contributors and our audience.
