Creatives Against Covid-19 is a campaign calling on the creative industry to design and donate inspiring posters of optimism, resilience, and hope. The posters will be made available to buy in print, with all proceeds donated equally across Women’s Aid and ISPCC Childline.
This is the worst global crisis the world has faced since WWII threatening everyone indiscriminately, but especially vulnerable women and children. 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 our help now. ISPCC Childline is already reporting a 30 per cent increase in vulnerable children seeking help and advice online. Equally, Women’s Aid is deeply concerned about the safety of women and children affected by domestic abuse during this pandemic.
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. We want to come together as a creative force and use our collective imagination and skills to design posters of hope, optimism and resilience. The posters
will be created and donated by all creatives including; illustrators, designers, artists, photographers, typographers, writers. All posters will be available for purchase as beautiful prints on www.creativesagainstcovid19.com.
To reframe this crisis into something more hopeful and optimistic, we have chosen the campaign theme ‘Soon’. This moment in our lives will not last forever. Soon we will be reunited with our families and friends. Soon all the things we enjoy the most will resume. And when they do, we will appreciate them so much more. We will emerge stronger from this crisis, showing more respect and kindness towards each other and our world. Under the positive theme of ‘Soon’ we can share messages of: Hope and Optimism, Strength and Solidarity, Togetherness, Kindness, Resilience. The prints will spread messages of hope for now and the future. The print submission date has now closed. Over 1,200 submissions from 23 countries in just seven days have been donated.
The prints will go on sale week ending April 24 on
All proceeds will be equally donated to ISPCC Childline and Women’s Aid.
The campaign is a creative collaboration between Shauna Buckley, Emma Conway, Sarah Doyle, Ryan Kavanagh, Fuchsia MacAree, Rory Simms, The Project Twins and was originated by RichardsDee.
