When Brands Take a Stand
- 7 October — 13 November 2020 *on now
Brands and advertising have the power to influence society. They affect the way we see ourselves and how we engage with others and the world we live in. When large brands and businesses take a stand on societal and political issues, it resonates strongly with consumers; often positively but sometimes negatively. What happens when a frozen food brand takes a stand against palm oil production, a sports brand fights for equal rights, or a chocolate brand celebrates LGBTQ+ pride?
Chris Griffin, CEO at the Museum of Brands says, “We want to amplify the debate around the relationship between brands, people, culture and society, and how these interact with each other. Brands and advertising agencies have a platform to influence, and with that comes responsibility. This initiative dives into these complex relationships.”
The exhibition present some of the most inspirational and debated advertising campaigns that take a stand for causes such as diversity, inclusion, environmentalism, health, wellbeing and human rights.

Ever wondered what goes into an iconic brand? It’s pioneering roots, how it adapts to stay relevant; evolving its brand identity and advertising in keeping with the times?
The new interactive exhibition at the Museum of Brands, in Notting Hill London, presented by Founding Sponsor Shell opens on the 11th April 2018.
