ACADEMIC PARTNERSHIPS

University of Arts London (UAL)

In 2018, CANNTalks began an academic partnership with University of Arts London, London College of Communication. London College of Communication, UAL is a pioneering leader in creative communications education.

CANNTalks worked with 24 film makers and creative directors enrolled in MA Art Direction as part of a live brief.

The Brief

The brief: Create short form films aimed at informing, illuminating and increasing public understanding of cannabis, cannabis oil and its medicinal use.

EXPLORE

THE PHILOSPHY

CANNTalks is an expansive forum for a new kind of connection and community. In focusing in on the current cannabis issues, and their associated debates, we seek to initiate increased cross-cultural awareness and consciousness of the many trans-global impacts of this complex plant; of an equally complicated industry; and of the social dynamics born of these interwoven aspects.

As the global landscape surrounding cannabis undergoes rapid transition and multiple regionally-specific changes on a legal, social, and practical level, new and vitally significant questions continue to be generated. CANNTalks engages with these questions – and with the history, policy, philosophy and concerns that act as cultural buffers to these questions – right now, as they arise. And from the standpoint that our choices and our debate hold the power for change in a grassroots capacity and from an ethically potent position.

This links to our essential placement as a Not-For-Profit Organisation, seeking to engage with fundamental human rights and better-life for all. This comes from a dynamic principle of open-development; changing communication; and increased acceptance – from every possible perspective.

Not for Profit

CANNTalks is incorporated as a not for profit project, dedicated to sharing ideas, notions and information.
If you are inspired to participate or feel that you could benefit from participating or if you have something that you need to share on the subject, then we want to hear from you. We are an open minded organisation with an eye on the horizon.
