Using satire in campaigns

Thanks to Snapshot Films for recording and editing this video of the session for us.

Workshop session

Satire can be a powerful tool for campaigning, but it can also be a fickle one. It relies on the subjective nature of other people’s taste and sense of humour for its success.

Join us to investigate ‘successful’ and ‘not-so-successful’ campaigns of the past, and question what this success looks like:

  • What happens when there’s conflict between message and humour?
  • Why is the stuff you leave out just as important as the stuff you leave in?
  • And what do you risk when crossing that hard-to-spot ‘invisible line’?
