We Are The Future // EEA // Flyer and Publication Design

A couple of months ago, the amazing people over at Emergency Exit Arts got me involved in We Art The Future, a research, performance and journalism project, aiming to engage young people, from schools in the boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark, about the history of activism and protest within their local communities.

I brought my design skills along to two days of a week long youth journalism workshop, the end result of which was to be a publication featuring the information and views discovered/discussed throughout the week. As well as researching we encouraged the young people to investigate design ideas and aesthetics and get to grips with the complicated process of producing, laying out and designing a magazine. We the EEA team then had the task of taking this information and pulling it together into a publication. The end result is being launched at the event on Saturday off the back of a day of live debate, presentations, performances and workshops. Pretty proud of how it all turned out. Will put up a pdf once I have the final version.

Credits to Darryl Daley (my co designer on the publication), the EEA team and all the young people involved.
