Poster Power: an invitation to make your sign of encouragement by Anthony Burrill
“From WWII's ‘Keep Calm and Carry On,’ the Sixties' ‘Make Love Not War,’ and Shepard Fairey's ‘Hope,’ to the rainbow drawings children are posting in living room windows across the UK to show their support for healthcare workers fighting COVID-19, posters have shown their power to communicate important messages of inspiration and motivation during times of crisis” writes the introduction to a must-watch event today online.
Hosted by Monika Jiang and Morgwn Rimel the latest installment of House of Beautiful Business’ Living Room series is an invitation to Anthony Burrill’s studio tour and a workshop of kindness in which literally everyone who has A4 paper and a Sharpie can, and should, participate.
