This project agitates stereotyping and discrimination around regional accents. I have done this by celebrating a strong accent, using famous and successful people from cities to who have a reputation for negativity surrounding their accents. My creative concept was to use humorous and colloquial language to celebrate regional accents.
I have created a booklet that is aimed to be sent out to employers that contains quotes from newspapers that show the negativity in the media regarding accents to highlight the issue. The booklet contains stickers for employers to put around their workplace to show their support towards equal opportunity regarding accents.
