Open Call for advocates!

Open Call for advocates!

Calling all advocates and organizers!

Collaborate with CUP on our next issue of Public Access Design!

We’re looking for community and advocacy organizations that are working to address policy issues that would benefit from a visual explanation, and where the lack of understanding of that issue is leading to social injustice. Together, we’ll collaborate with art and design professionals to break down complex problems into an accessible, culturally appropriate visual tool for your constituents.

Public Access Design (PAD) projects are short, intensive collaborations that result in a visual tool that meets a New York City-based advocate’s organizing needs as they arise. They are concise in scope, cover urgent topics, and take around 4-6 months to create, and our advocate partners will receive 1,000 free printed copies at the end!

We’re looking for groups who work directly with the constituency impacted by the issue and who can directly distribute the completed tool to that audience. Applicants should be interested in engaging in a collaborative design process and, most of all, interested in explaining an aspect of public policy! (We define public policy broadly – past topics include: how to avoid wage theft if you’re a domestic workerhow to get your stuff back after an arrest, and navigating the bail process).

Applications are due by Nov 25th, 2019 at 5pm – click here to learn more!
