Right now the stirrings of protest and social change are being felt around the world, from Bernie Sanders in the US to Jeremy Corbyn in the UK. But away from the news cameras, maybe more important social changes are taking places under our very noses.
"The most profound youth revolution I've seen in the last 10 years has been a graphical one," says Fred Deakin, (opens in new tab) professor of Interactive Digital Arts at the University of the Arts London.

His incendiary words form the opening salvo in the trailer (above) for documentary film Made You Look, a film about creativity in the digital age and the graphic arts scene in the UK, featuring Antony Burrill, Kate Moross, Helen Musselwhite, Pete Fowler, Jon Burgerman and more.
A must-see for creatives, the film will be screened at Design Manchester (opens in new tab), an annual festival of talks, workshops, exhibitions, screenings, debates and more in the northern English metropolis.
The screening will take place on 18 October at 1500, followed by a Q&A with the film's makers.
And there's plenty more design goodness taking place in Manchester during the festival week of 14-21 October.
Highlights include 'Design How', an evening with some of the UK's greatest thinkers, creatives and doers such as IDEO, Territory Studio, Ben Terrett and Clive Grinyer, as well as 'Music How', which sees New Order's Stephen Morris (yes, that New Order) in conversation with Jon Drape and Luke Brainbridge.
Elsewhere in the festival calendar you'll also find film screenings, art exhibitions, the Manchester Print Festival and talks from legends such as Ian 'Swifty' Swift (opens in new tab).
