Thursday, December 13, 2018 ((rezonodwes.com)) – From January 21 to 25, 2019, the graphic designer Teresa Sdralevich will be in Haiti to animate, in collaboration with the Haitian graphic designer Ralph Dupoux, a workshop on the design of posters around human rights for young graphic designers, graphic artists, illustrators and illustrators. This 5-day workshop will be divided into two parts, a first on human rights, and a second on poster design. An exhibition of the posters produced during the workshop, as well as an event where the public can make a poster on human rights will close the workshop.
To advocate, to raise awareness, to challenge, to indignant, to militate … skills and tools to use to achieve in the Haitian public space? How can we promote and defend our rights, those of others, express our ideas, individually or in a political way? The poster, by the force of the image, by the resonance of the slogan, can constitute one of these tools and allow the expression of a word citizen. Mastering the language of the image and understanding the codes, understanding the values underpinned by human rights, thinking and composing, then become major issues related to the creation of political posters, to intelligently produce an impact on the spectateur.
This workshop aims to identify illustrators / graphic artists / graffiti writers who want to create posters to promote human rights, and assist them in this process through the transmission of tools and skills. This activity is the result of a partnership between FOKAL's Citizen Education and Media programs and the Art Center. It is part of the project “Access to justice and the fight against impunity in Haiti”, in partnership with Avocats Sans Frontières Canada, with the support of World Affairs Canada.
