Fake News Exhibition
From 15 September to 14 October, the Alliance Francaise of Canberra will present ‘Fake News’, an exhibition produced by Poster for Tomorrow, with the support of the Institut Francais and the French Embassy in Australia. Opening night is on Friday 16 September!
‘Fake News’ is an exhibition that reflects on the power of spreading fake and misleading information. Graphic designers from around the world have designed posters reflecting on media, social media, misinformation and its consequences. 40 posters will be displayed at the Alliance Française of Canberra, inviting you to reflect on this theme.
With the ever growing use of social media, we are now constantly given global news and information – how do we detect which are true and which are not? Traditional media now have to face a constant flood of information online, from various sources. This exhibition reflects on the impact this has on public opinion, how these Fake News are used by various personalities and politicians.
Exhibition is free of entry and open at our Alliance opening times!
Fake News Student Contest
At the Alliance Francaise, we want to include young French learners and students in a debate on Fake News, and have them reflect on the impact of misleading information. We want them to fully understand the impact of Fake News, know how to identify them and analyse them in the future.
On this occasion we have organized a contest for 14 to 18 years old where they will have to create a fake news – making them experts at identifying them. Great prizes to be won (polaroid, speaker, earpods)! You have until August 17 to enter the contest.
