‘Poster design to change the world’ is a multi-layered resource aimed at enriching understandings of the role of the practice of the graphic designer/artist, the design process, the audience and the world. It supports the teaching of Oxfam’s ‘Six Goals to Change the World’, the human rights principles that guide Oxfam’s work.
This resource has been developed to support the teaching of Visual Arts, Media Studies and Design. It can also complement learning in English (persuasive texts) and Humanities and Social Sciences (campaigning and political movements). It is designed to be used in Primary and Secondary classrooms.
