The past two years of ongoing restrictions caused by the worldwide pandemic have shown the importance of the visual in the everyday. Our lives have become more visual than ever before – from intense visual-sharing practices with relatives and friends, video conferencing and online education, to the visual presence of pandemic contexts in cityscapes, artistic practices in local communities, media feeds including charts and graphs, and creation of remixed images as a commentary to the crises. It has become clear that we increasingly need visual literacy in terms of image creation, reception and visual thinking. In these unpredictable times, we aim for the impossible – to envision the futures of visual literacy. The 54th Annual Conference of the International Visual Literacy Association brings together scholars, educators, students and artists to (re)discover the (new) connections between the variety of disciplinary traditions and educational practices in visual literacy and beyond.
