Please book via Eventbrite.

Join tax campaigners and communications experts to discuss the role that communications and design can play in shaping people’s attitudes to tax.
In the 10 years since the global financial crisis, tax issues have become widely debated. From revelations of celebrity tax dodging to debate about how the government should raise funds to pay for the NHS, tax is one of the defining issues of our times.
This event celebrates the launch of ‘Communicating Tax: Exploring alternatives to the UK government’s Annual Tax Summary’, a report by Liam Stanley (University of Sheffield) and Rebecca Bramall (London College of Communication, UAL).

A short presentation on the research will precede the panel discussion, and there will also be an opportunity to view The Ministry of Tax, an exhibit presenting an alternative tax summary developed by designers from the project team.
