Description

What you will learn

Find out how typography gave the angst and rebellion of Punk a voice that exploded in a riot of letterforms and demanded to be heard. See how a typeface gave Obama’s words the clarity and impact to change history. Learn how your choice of font can empower your words and become the soapbox for your rallying cry. 

A typeface gives a cause or movement a recognisable voice that inspires ideas, ensures its message is listened to, and empowers its words to make a difference.  

Sarah will show you what the voices of change and rebellion look like against the backdrop of history. Seeing them in the context of the era reveals the full impact they had at the time, and demonstrates how a font can become the catalyst for change.

About the evening

Arrive early to see the temporary exhibition The Graphics of Punk. Admission to the Museum displays are included in the ticket.
