okay, but no, these are two of the posters i’m putting up tonight and i’m actually really really fucking nervous because if i get stopped and someone gets confrontational, i’m seriously fucked man.
*edit: everything went fine. sooo…these are also for that class project I have to do. the idea of the project is simple; create some posters pertaining to aboriginal issues and the upcoming halloween bullshit, leave them up, and then document what happens to them in the following week. there were some posters over the summer about white folks with dreads and how that’s not cool and those were viciously vandalized (vandalizing the vandalism lol) with hate speech, retorts and whitesplaining in my neighbourhood, so i’m curious to see what’s going to happen and i hope that the imagery is provocative enough to make people try and piece together what i’m laying down.
If you think that these posters may be of some use to you, please feel free to take this download. greyscale and colour posters for 11x14 (can be scaled to 8x11 comfortably) at 300dpi included for each of the above as well as the poster from my previous post. stats taken from this document on the parliment of canada website.
