Social Issue Posters
Tasked with creating a poster about a social issue, I decided to tackle the issue of school shootings. The USA have had 57 times as many school shootings as other major industrialized nations combined, astounding. I covered a gun with stickers to show the contrast between innocent, playful childhood and the sinister truth of the matter. Two things that should never go together put together to shock and bring attention to the issue.
"Femmes et pouvoir d'agir" is the theme of the 2018 Marc Choko Grant competition at UQAM. This is my poster submission.
The direction I took for the poster was to tackle the stereotyping of women. This was represented in the pink dress. Burning it on display clearly connoted womens' power to change this stereotype.
