EASS exhibition - "Perseverance"
From 2 to 19 August, selected artists from ANU School of Arts will be exhibiting their work at the Alliance Francaise of Canberra. Winners
of the EASS (Emerging Artist Supporting Scheme) award, these artists will showcase paintings, photographs, glass works, furniture and more
in the exhibition space at the Alliance.
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 will be on Friday 16 September!
'Fake News' is an exhibition that reflects on the power of spreading fake and misleading information. 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.
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 15 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)!
