Join a panel of designers, artists and activists for a talk on the visual languages of protest.

As protests have erupted across the globe over the last ten years, so has the need for graphic designers to help craft a new visual language for activists, occupiers and campaigners.

This talk will discuss the key visual forms that have been adopted by thousands of people to represent solidarity and communicate discontent – from banners, t-shirts and hats to internet memes and videos.

While technology has given people the tools to access, share and mass produce protest material, handcrafted material has also flourished, empowering individuals, inspiring the masses.
