Nick Crowson’s Special Subject Group have been examining NGOs publicity and campaigning on homelessness in the 1960s, 1980s and 1990s.
They were tasked with creating new promotional campaigns evocative of the changes in the marketing strategies of Shelter through the ages.

Second, homeless groups’ politicization and response to the Thatcherite rhetoric on housing.
Third, NGOs attempts to narrate poverty and emphasis on human rights during the 1990s.
We see lucrative careers in marketing and the NGO/charitable sector in the future….
