A full day conference in July, Public Relations and The Visual: Exploring Identity, Space and Performance, explores PR’s relationship with multi-media. The conference will combine talks from PR, marketing, and branding experts, with interactive workshops demonstrating visual communication.

The event, to be held at University of the Arts London, aims to encourage collaboration and partnership between academics and practitioners. Key note speakers include Ian Burrell, assistant editor and media editor, at The Independent, who will be speaking about the image of the PR industry in a post-Clifford world.

Panel discussions will incorporate case studies from Edelman and Wolfstar. Other topics up for discussion include; ‘How the whiteness of the PR industry is used as a form of power in creating a dominant identity for practitioners’, and ‘How the PR industry can be conceptualised as a dirty work industry alongside other perceived dirty occupations such as prison officers, call centre managers and toilet cleaners’.

The event is being hosted by the Network for Public Relations and Society and will run from 10 until 4.30pm on 9 July. For more information visit the website.
