CUP is now accepting applications from advocates for Making Policy Public until Monday, August 19th at 12 PM EDT!

Are you an advocacy/community organization working on a complex policy/social justice issue that would benefit from a visual explanation? We want to work with YOU!

Making Policy Public is CUP’s series of foldout posters that use graphic design to explore and explain public policy. Each poster is the product of a collaboration of a designer, an advocate, and CUP.

We’re looking for organizations working to address policy issues that need a visual explanation, and where the lack of understanding of the issue is leading to social injustice. We seek groups who work directly with the constituencies impacted by the issues and who can distribute the completed project directly to that audience.

Applicants should be interested in engaging in a collaborative design process and, most of all, interested in explaining an aspect of public policy. Applicants must also be able to attend meetings in NYC.
