About this event

Contemporary culture, steeped in comedy and consumerism, has hit a new obstacle: we've had modernism, we've had the new authenticity, we've had the premium mediocre and finally the awful effects of meme culture on our politics. D4T argues that it's time we learned to take ourselves seriously whilst expressing ourselves in a relaxed, natural manner- that of the humble doodle, the lavatory wall cartoon. How can progressive forces for good channel a new form of authenticity that works well for all of us? And can we actually do it through bloody comics?

Join this workshop to discuss the issue, as well as underlying questions involving the future of advertising as a business model for media publishers. Think about the stories you would like to see told - everything from public transport to Londoncentricity to Britain's aging population - and start telling them in an accessible, visual format.
