Political Softies: A How-To Workshop Guide

  • Rhia Cook
My final body of work for degree show focused in on the idea of making politics easier to engage with for young people. It's an area I feel particularly passionate about but one that is often, as with a lot of issues relating to politics, dealt with in a serious way. For this part of fulfilling the brief, I collated the data I had generated and the workshop I had put together into a publication, a how-to guide of running my workshop.
This allowed me to reflect on the project as a whole and look at how the lessons learned could be applied to other serious topics, how humour and ridiculousness can make talking about boring or dull topics easier.
