We partnered with the National Association for Women and the Law to develop and publish a public legal education guide to women, money and relationships, providing them with the information and tools they need to make informed decisions and build economic independence as they enter intimate relationships.
Not Lost was a free 10-week creative writing workshop in Toronto for youth living with grief through the loss of a loved one. The Public worked with mel to design a poster that welcomed youth aged 18-29 who exist within the margins to share a place where participants gather to share, grieve, build, and make.
The Day of Action invites girls and young women across the country to organize actions to engage with social justice issues. These actions are as varied and diverse as the young women invited to participate and can range from self-care, to writing or blogging, to zine-making or community organizing.
The Public worked closely with the YWCA Canada on a civic engagement campaign for girls 13-29 across Canada. Together, we developed a civic engagement toolkit and social networking site addressing a wide range of issues. The Public worked with Pam Kapoor to research and develop the toolkit, copy and writing, and developed an outreach communications strategy to reach this diverse audience.
We worked with the peer youth leaders at the My MSG program to develop a calendar of affirming messages about themselves and each other. The group learned about composition, typography, image creation, and creating a design brief, culminating in this fifteen-month calendar filled with love.
