Online Talk: Equity & Justice Poster Design During COVID

August 5, 2020

Join Poster House and Isometric Studio—a Brooklyn-based design studio led by queer people of color—as we discuss the transformative role of posters in promoting inclusion, equity, and justice.

The program will begin with a presentation by Poster House Collections Manager Melissa Walker on the history of protest posters. Next, Isometric partners Andy Chen and Waqas Jawaid will present a few case studies of how tech, educational, and cultural institutions are using poster and spatial design to redress racism and authenticate the experiences of people of color.

The event will conclude with a conversation among the presenters and a Q&A session with attendees. Attendees are welcome to create and share their own posters in response to the program during or after the event on social media.

This talk is made possible through Culture Pass, a program for cardholding patrons of New York City’s public libraries, the Brooklyn Public Library, New York Public Library, and Queens Public Library. Support for Culture Pass is provided by The New York Community Trust, Charles H. Revson Foundation, Stavros Niarchos Foundation, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
