INSPIRATION: feminist heroes picture book
THANK YOU to ALL who made the launch last night such a success -- our designers (Carrie-Anne, Clint & Isis, Carol, Sarah, Amanda, Brooke, Patrice, Cyan & Neil), our writer (Sara), our printer (Craig at Hemlock), our speaker (Janni at UVic), the venue (Sheila & Michelle at AGGV) and the hosting organization (GDC). And mostly, thank you to the 120 attendees who joined us, supporting this launch!
As our first phase, eight local designers created nine posters, which were presented at a public event at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria on October 2, 2014. Each designer described the process behind their poster, and then each of the 120 attendees was welcome to take home 2 posters (of their choice).
WHAT IS THE GIRLHOOD POSTER PROJECT?
The Girlhood poster project is creating a diverse collection posters for schools and public spaces.
The project has 3 phases:...
PHASE 1 saw the creation of posters by 8 graphic designers, launched at a public event at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria (Canada), October 2, 2014. www.girlhood.ca/phase1
PHASE 2 (currently in progress) is to get feedback on these posters, from a small advisory group (3 teachers, 3 counsellors, 3 graphic designers), and then refine the posters. We'll also be "testing" our posters, putting a small few into public spaces.
PHASE 3 (early 2015) is to print a larger number of the posters, and provide them for free to schools, rec centers and other public spaces.
