PosterFest: Design for Good 2019

Date: Saturday, April 27, 2019
Time: 2–6pm
Location: The Wolfsonian–FIU @ 1001 Washington Avenue

South Florida has the highest rate of HIV in the nation. So how can we help address a public health crisis through visual communication? Join us for an interdisciplinary event packed with presentations, hands-on workshops, and a “design with empathy” challenge focused on the theme of posters as vehicles for advocacy and social change. Inspired by select pieces from our AIDS awareness poster collection, the afternoon includes an exhibition of vintage HIV/AIDS posters and the contemporary companions local designers created in response—all in an effort to combat a startling statistic impacting our community.

Co-presented with AIGA Miami and Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County, STD/HIV Prevention and Control Program. Sponsored by Southeastern Printing.
