Making For Change, a social acition training programme for 16 - 25 year olds run by Craftspace in Birmingham. Using presentations, exhibition visits, discussions and lots of making, participants leant how to tackle social justice issues culminating in making-based social action campaigns led by the group. It was my job to interpret the different campaigns and produce illustrated postcards to promote and support their ideas.
Overall Making For change was a huge challenge, but the young people worked incredibly hard and together the result was 6 campaigns consolidated into 3 colourful postcard designs ready for them to put out into the world, extending the reach of their ideas beyond the final event, which drew a crowd all ready to enjoy a night of learning new skills whilst discovering ways of making positive change in their communities.
