Draw me Democracy
“Draw Me Democracy” is Poster for tomorrow’s new project and it’s also one of the few global projects that the UNDEF, the United Nation Democracy Fund, has ever financed.
The aim of DMD is to help young artists, designers and communication professionals in taking an active role in all democratic and/or human rights-related processes and it wishes of doing so by helping them in finding their own strong creative voice. In this context, the empowerment of women is at the core of DMD priorities.
With these goals in mind, DMD is a series of 16 free of
charge, one-week poster design workshops across 15 key countries
scattered around Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and Latin America.
The workshops aim to strengthen the participants knowledge and skills in the fields of design, social communication and advocacy advertising.
The experience will come full circle after 6 months follow up, when few more workshops will take place in some of the 15 countries or even in some new ones in order to make more designers benefit this initiative.
Do The Right Thing
In a world that is becoming increasingly polarised, perhaps the one thing that unites us all is the conviction that we are all acting for the right reasons. And having formed an opinion about an issue, there is little room to have it changed by listening to an opposing view. Fake news has eroded trust in facts. So how can we move forward?
