On this course learners will be introduced to teenage and young adult activists and their causes. These include Little Miss Flint who has campaigned for clean water access for Flint, USA for 5 years, Lizzie Mate-Kole Rampe for organising a UK Black Lives Matter march and Greta Thunberg and Vanessa Nakate for their environmental work.
We will be considering how campaigns have used art and design in getting their message across to the public, looking specifically at the work of artists such as Johanna Reign, Tihara Smith and Rebecca Strickson. Each week learners will make their own work in support of something they feel passionate about. This will include collage portraits, designing slogans and creating outfits.
