Call for Posters: Giving Voice Exhibition & Fundraiser

Giving Voice, an annual poster exhibition at Access Gallery in Denver, opens on Friday, July 18, and could feature your social justice poster. Artists, graphic designers, illustrators, and other creatives are invited to donate a design to be featured in and sold during the exhibition. All proceeds fund the Giving Voice program and Access Gallery.

Your donated poster design should call awareness to a social justice issue you are passionate about. Designs must be submitted no later than Friday, July 11 using this form from AIGA. If you need inspiration for your design, visit Drawn to Action: Posters from the AIGA Design Archives on view now at the Denver Art Museum.

Giving Voice is a collaboration between Access Gallery/VSA of Colorado and AIGA Colorado. In addition to the donated poster exhibition, there is also an exhibition of posters made by teens with disabilities. The teens are paired with local graphic designers to create an educational poster voicing an issue important to them. These posters will also be for sale during the exhibition.
