A year ago Will Georgi and Tommaso Minnetti, two of the project co-founders, were in Karachi for a Draw Me Democracy workshop. The people they met and the students they had the privilege of working with were truly inspirational.

A week after the Pakistani general elections, we can say that the work done that week has been truly worth it. The posters made to promote the right to vote during the workshop were featured on many national newspapers.

Here we present you a little press cuttings round-up, made with the articles that were published on influent Pakistani information outlets such as Dawn, The Express Tribune and The News a few days before the vote.

This remarkable result, which rewards the efforts made by the workshop participants, a group of students from the Visual Arts department at the University of Karachi, has been possible only thanks to the hard work of Abro Khuda Bux (pictured in the gallery together with Durriya Khazi, the faculty director), our local representative.
Abro was also able to put together an exhibition at the Arts Council in Karachi two days before the elections (pictured above), displaying the best posters coming from all of the Draw Me Democracy workshops around the globe.
