Citizenship Hack

I co-direct the Methods Lab with Beckie Coleman. It is a research centre based in the Sociology Department at Goldsmiths. In this collaboration we worked with Glimpse, a commercial communications collective, to use communication and branding techniques to explore, experiment and hack with ideas around citizenship and social change. The group included students from MA Promotional Media, MA Brands, Communications and Culture and MA Visual Sociology as well as PhD students and staff members. We came up with lots of ideas to think differently about big issues at the moment such as single use plastic/plastic in the ocean and how to encourage more people to vote. The group generated a lot of energy despite it being the last week of term!
