A campaign calling on Ireland’s creative industry to design and donate inspiring posters of optimism, resilience and hope in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic has been launched. Called Creatives Against Covid-19, the drive will see the posters being made available to download or buy in print with all funds going to Women’s Aid and ISPCC Childline.
ISPCC Childline recently reported a 30 per cent increase in vulnerable children seeking help and advice online. Women’s Aid expressed deep concern about the safety of women and children affected by domestic abuse during this pandemic. Social isolation is more dangerous for women and children living in the reality of abusive relationships.
Trapped inside without the sanctuary of work or school, these people need help urgently.
Creatives Against Covid-19 aims to mobilise the creative community to help raise much needed funds for women and children who are suffering and in need. The posters will be created and donated by illustrators, designers, artists, photographers, typographers and writers. They will be on sale online either as digital downloads or as prints.
The poster submission date is Thursday, April 16. Soon after, the posters will be made available to buy online. Originated by the RichardsDee, the agency run by Simon Richards and Celine Dee, the campaign is a collaboration between Shauna Buckley, Emma Conway, Sarah Doyle, Ryan Kavanagh, Fuchsia MacAree, Rory Simms and The Project Twins.
