This class will explore the potentials of creative activism through enabling you to make media interventions in cultural, political and social debates.
Throughout the 10 week class we will be exploring how media activists and campaigners have used their media knowledge, connections and skills to ask difficult questions, provoke debate and raise awareness of important issues and problems in their local, national and international communities.
It is an activity-led class where participants will be choosing an issue that is important to them and working on a series of tasks that will aim to provide them with a number of and skills and abilities.
By being run as an open community it will enable participants to constructively critique, learn from, build on and collaborate with each other to produce a body of work that will, hopefully, make a practical and positive impact on the issue that the students are addressing.
If you are interested in getting involved, or just want to stay up to date with the work of this class, please join us here or post comments using the #creativact hashtag. We look forward to hearing from you.
The class is open to all, so if you would like to join in then there are a number of ways you can get involved.

The Creative Activism (#creativact) class is being set up as a collaborative project with its community at its heart, so it is important that our participants have involvement from the start. We’re therefore keen on hearing from people who are interested in contributing to this project in a number of ways.
While we are busy putting our ideas together it would be fantastic to hear from others who share our passion for using media to impact on positive social and cultural change.
Please feel free to comment on our blog and to add your suggestions. Or email p.woodbridge (at) coventry.ac.uk for more information about getting involved
