The Peace Posters – Breakdown Poster Series #4

Hi everyone out there … spread the word.

We’re putting together another Breakdown Poster Series! And this time we’re seeking posters about PEACE.

It’s an interesting time to be reflecting on Australia’s role in international politics, particularly in light of the upcoming visit by the US President Barack Hussein Obama. Australia is still involved in wars of aggression in the Middle East where military interventions are still being enacted. Indigenous people in the Northern Territory, where incidentally a US base is located, are also being subjected to interventionist policies.

This is a great chance for designers, artists and writers to work towards creating a peaceful future. Hopefully these posters will end up on bedroom walls, in workplaces, streets, shopfronts and schools!

Artists and designers are encouraged to use writing and statistics from academics, historians, poets, scientists, activists and song writers in their poster designs. We want to see stencils, printmaking, illustration, painting, typography, photography and collage in poster designs. Think handmade.

So get crackin’ and send ya work in before 1st May!
