Project Description: The ability to persuade others, through the form of arts and culture, is particularly relevant in our modern society given the fact that arts have become an influential part of our lives. People nowadays are exposed to the arts since a very young age but why does art actually exist? Art exist as a form of communication that is able to convey both simple and complex message and it is this factor in art that we are interested in and are focusing on.
Through this project we hope to be able to inform the public about the possibility of using arts in a more useful manner. Since arts can convey messages of all sorts, proper use of these messages can be used to encourage people to participate in a wide array of different activities etc, in the form of propaganda.
