Creative Activism #creativact – my 7 challenge responses & additional tasks, presentation, and 5 blog posts for assessment

I thought I’d put together a neat blog post where I list all the relevant posts for assessment.

Challenge 1) Provoking truths with imagery

Task 1 #creativact – Provoking truths with imagery. Things that bother me in our world.

It contains my image, analysis about its relevance and impact, plus a breakdown and explaination of the main topics I identified that I wanted to cover in my #creativact project involvement.

Challenge 2) Ongoing – #creativact community participation

I have been actively posting links to my blog and other online resources on Twitter, have been often featured in the #creativact daily publications, sometimes making the Top stories. I’ve also taken part in discussions on the #creativact Twitter and Facebook accounts, and posted comments and feedback on other people’s work on Flickr and Vimeo.

Challenge 3) Case study – Group task

This was a group task, and the brief said we should post it on one of our individual blogs & then tweet it. Here are links to the blog post on Adina’s blog and then the tweet:

Case Study – McDonald’s
