Making Policy Public Call for Advocacy Partners—Apply Now!

Making Policy Public Call for Advocacy Partners—Apply Now!

CUP is seeking collaborators for the next four issues of Making Policy Public, our publication series that uses graphic and information design to explore and explain complex public policy issues. We are looking for community or advocacy organizations working on important social justice issues that could benefit from visual explanation.

Making Policy Public uses innovative graphic design to explore and explain public policy. Each publication is the product of a collaboration of CUP staff, an advocacy or organizing group, and a designer. This series aims to make information on public policy truly public: accessible, meaningful, and shared.

Partners will be chosen with the help of a jury of esteemed advocates and designers. This year’s jury members are Maya Wiley, Executive Director of the Center for Social Inclusion; Sondra Youdelman, Executive Director of Community Voices Heard; Prem Krishnamurthy Co-founder of Project Projects; and illustrator Tomer Hanuka.

Advocacy partners will receive 1,000 copies of the color publication to distribute directly to their constituents and an honorarium of $1,000. CUP will manage the research, editing, art direction, and production processes.

Applicants should be interested in engaging in a collaborative design process and, most of all, interested in explaining an aspect of public policy. The series defines public policy broadly. Topics have ranged from the barriers to re-entry for formerly incarcerated people in Upstate New York to domestic workers’ labor rights. Although CUP is a New York City-based organization, submissions need not address New York specifically. Topics could range in scope from the governmental to the informal, and in scale from the local to the international. Applicants must be able to regularly attend meetings in New York City.

Proposals must be received by May 6, 2012, no later than 5 pm. To learn more about the program visit: makingpolicypublic.net
