Rethinking Representation in Advertising

Towards Change

The project aims to reimagine controversial advertising and update them to messages of positivity by using a civic engagement approach. Your insights could transform the advertising landscape and bring about meaningful change by creating tangible alternative ideas!

Our Process

1. Selection

We've chosen a series of controversial ad for perpetuating stereotypes related to gender and ethnicity.

2. Workshop

Through public workshops, these ads are reimagined and their messages positively reframed, employing designer skills and AI for visual representation.

3. Exhibition

An exhibition then compares the original and revised ads, spotlighting the adjustments made and incorporating expert feedback on the improvements.


4. Networking

It culminates in a networking reception, connecting participants with the broader creative industry.

Workshops for Social Good

Organisers will finalise the idea from the workshop and Your work, credited with your name, will be featured in our April exhibition, visited by industry professionals from marketing, media, and the creative sector.
