Subject: [Reader-list] [Announcements] MAKE YOUR STREET SIGN : DEADLINE MAY
To: announcements at sarai.net
This one's on behalf of Blank Noise-it's an event
to create street signs in the city.
*Make a street sign* <http://blog.blanknoise.org/2009/04/make-sign.html>
It can be in any city , street , lane , neighbourhood you want. You could
think of signs in buses, parks, night clubs, movie halls, malls and markets-
it is up to you to spell out which kind of place you want your sign in. It
could even be in sites where women have experienced street sexual
harassment- like here <http://www.flickr.com/photos/blanknoisethisplace/>.
You are welcome to say anything you want.
1. we encourage submissions that are affirmative.
2. your submission should include a brief note about which place you want to
insert the sign in and why
3. it could be in any language but an English translation is important.
4. It does not need to have text. It could just be visual.
5. It does not need to have visual. It could just be text.
6. It could have both text and visual.
7. You must send us a web friendly jpg/ png/ file, but remember not to throw
away the original vector file in case yours is selected for printing!
8. you may be the recruiter- you could involve your local network to work on
for example- if you are a teacher- this could be a class assignment. If you
are in college- you could organize a community of people to work on this.
9. Some of you might have better writing skills than visualization skills,
in that case you are
welcome to send text for a street sign. Based on the response to this event
we might have the option of someone with visual skills partnering with you
to make this sign.
10. keep it simple
Your street sign will be put on the Blank Noise blog + flickr.
3 signs will be selected to be tried and tested in public. The selected
signs could also be printed on t shirts.
Deadline: 17th May. 2009
