The class explores the potentials of creative media activism through media interventions and participation in cultural, political and social debates. Looking at how media activists and campaigners have used their media knowledge, connections and skills to ask difficult questions, provoke debate and raise awareness of important issues and problems in their local, national and international communities.
This class is aimed at creative people (filmmakers, photographers, artists, designers, digital media practitioners etc) and activists who want to make a difference and creative positive change in the world.
We’ll be opening up the classroom in a number of ways, including providing talks and podcasts as well as openly working with communities of practice to share and build knowledge and resources. It is run by Peter Woodbridge- a Digital Media Lecturer at Coventry School of Art and Design
