@kjones2561 For your groups final manifesto and paper, I thought maybe this USC publication , a manifesto on marketing and “the meaning of entertainment as a discourse, an industry and a key component of contemporary life” could serve as a good guiding source since it poses good questions for consideration, etc. I think it relates to your manifesto topic, or area that your concentrating on with images and how those images portray people and effect the values of the public. The PDF is only a couple of pages and includes some good perspectives on how to consider the topic:

“Our approach saturates the study of entertainment with questions of value. In that sense, we argue for an integra-tion of cultural studies with pro-fessional education. We teach whether and why along with what and how. The entertain-ment industry could profit from more leaders who grasp its impact on society. The society could benefit from more conscience, and more critical self-consciousness, in the creative process.”

The Norman Lear Center Manifesto was published in January 2000 when the Lear Center originally launched. This lushly illustrated and innovative brochure explains the mission of the Lear Center and probes the meaning of entertainment as a discourse, an industry, and a key component of contemporary life. The print version of the Manifesto won an American Graphic Design award and was featured in I.D. Magazine’s Annual Design Review, America’s largest and most prestigious juried design-recognition program.
