This session examines propaganda used by the British government to encourage civilians to contribute to the war effort. Students analyse photographs, film and posters produced by the Ministry of Information, and compare their effectiveness in conveying powerful messages to a mass audience.
Throughout this session, students use their observation, analysis and questioning skills, build on their knowledge of the Second World War and develop their understanding of propaganda. Those visiting onsite have the opportunity to work with the original artworks submitted by artists to the British government. Documents used in this session are also available to download.
Propaganda and the Art of War can be delivered as a Workshop, Videoconference or Virtual Classroom. Find out about the types of session we offer.
