Visual images help us communicate complex ideas, reach new and different audiences, reinforce our key messages and inspire people to join social change movements. Join us for a hands-on workshop that will explore design theory as well as different processes for envisioning and creating elements that will bring attention to your cause or event. Together we will practice making either a poster or a flyer. We'll also discuss ways to ensure our designs are following best practices around accessibility. Participants will be provided with resources for sourcing free and open source images. Please bring your creative ideas and a laptop if you have one.
Date: Thursday, Oct 20, 2p.m. - 5p.m.
Location: York University Health, Nursing and Environmental Studies (HNES) Room 140
Accessibility: Workshop will be held in an accessible space. Subway tokens will be available by request.
