Why is visual literacy discouraged in most cultures & WHAT CAN WE DO to change that?
I think one aspect of the challenge is the notion that visual communication/processing requires "talent" from the genetic lottery while we expect, that everyone will be able to read and write regardless of talent. Yet that doesn't mean that everyone who writes will write good poetry or novels, but that doesn't stop us from using the tools of language. Similarly, if we move towards seeing sketching/doodling/visual communication as a critical tool and de-couple it from great works of art, it might seem more accessible.
