#ProtestbyDesign: It's Our Time

1.jpg#asset:8645


We’ve got two new briefs for you Gluggers. We’re so proud of all of you and the success of #protestbydesign, we got seen and heard and raised the profile of the climate crisis and the climate strikes, now is the time to use that momentum to help enact real change! This is about climate & encouraging people to vote!


What?


The climate needs us, the time of the snowflake has come! We want to be heard. Create, share & submit your artwork to our database. We’ll get it in front of the media and press, to show the voice of the creative industry.

You can check out the current database of entries here!

All poster in the database will be added to the Tate Modern permanent archive & will have the chance to be shown on up and down the country, before the end of registration and before the election.

We’ll also be exhibiting the work in London and other Glug chapter events around the UK.


Who?


There are 14.6 million 18-34 yr olds in the UK. 4.79 million are unregistered. 60% of those are climate concerned. We need your help to turn this concern into action!


Briefs?


Create an A3 sized poster, either for registration, or for voting. Whichever brief you decide to undertake make sure to create compelling visual posters that will get climate concerned young people to register and to vote!

  1. Register - The climate crisis has finally registered, so should we. We’ve got until the 26th to target the 4.79million unregistered. Create visual material that targets the disenfranchised, the unspoken too, your vote counts and you need to use it. Register for the planet.  
  2. Vote - This brief is to target everyone registered to vote, we need to get people to realise the value of their votes, that voting for the climate is an option. Some things are even bigger than BREXIT, the climate won't get another chance. 

You can create designs for either of the above, or both and as many times as you like. There is no limit!


Messaging/language?


  1. This is a non-partisan campaign. We want people to make their own decisions on who to vote for. Please try to remain neutral in your designs and think about the message itself. Although we will not prohibit party politics, please be aware that as Glug as a neutral party cannot share overly partisan work.
  2. Please express your thoughts and feelings in any way you see fit but be respectful.
  3. Use emotion, engage the audience and make them aware of the importance of the subject matter. 
  4. Use facts and figures, you can get lots of relevant numbers here.


How?
