New Meanings from the past is the name of our political campaign group in the field module. We came up with this group because we feel that it is important to use the past so we as people can learn from it. Also we feel that a lot of things from the past have been neglected or forgotten, and we think they should be bought back for the future generations. These elements range from sweets, movies, technology to great leaders.
Our brief set by the module leaders was to make a poster campaigning for our cause. Our main idea is to take a general approach to this and each person in the group research a chosen decade, and pick something significant from that decade that they would want the future generations to experience. For example I went and researched the 60’s and found that there was a bunch of great leaders and figure heads such as Martin Luther King and JFK, in addition with the moon landing. The future generations need to have leaders in their lives at points of turmoil, and in addition we need to explore space more and find sustainable ways of living as the world wont last forever.
My only concern for this poster is trying to get all of the chosen decades on it and getting our message across clearly.
