Keywords:conference art, cartoon creative imaging, spiritual care, non threatening, communication
Non verbal communication has a long tradition. Pictures can display emotion, argument, describe feelings and point out things which are true or false, in a unique way. Cartoons in particular are accessible and invite reaction and understanding, have the ability to enthral and a lightness of touch. In this article the author explores the use of art for meaning, clarity and faith communities giving examples and comments on examples of cartoon creative imaging by Graham Ogilvie: graphic artist for a national conference A Seamless Transition: Spirituality in NHSScotland (NHSScotland 2003).
