Aboriginal artists for UN Rights of the Child posters

The Healthy Aboriginal Network

Non-profit promotion of health, literacy & wellness

Good day. We have recently been funded to create a poster series on the UN Rights of the Child, but with an Aboriginal youth focus. Something along the lines of what the Scottish have done (see http://www.sccyp.org.uk/resources/uncrc-illustrated-guide/images-young-people) but more diverse for our people. The primary audience is youth in care, and the posters will posted on-line.

Consequently, we are looking for First Nations, Metis and Inuit artists to compliment the work that our existing comic book artists do, to round out the project. The works can be traditional or contemporary, cultural or not, paintings or illustrations, but at the very least focused for youth. And they should match one of the Rights, of course. I hesitate to request professionals only, as many artists deserve to be published and never are. But please be discerning with your referrals – we have a reasonably high standard over here and people have come to expect it from us.

Artists, I need to see samples of your work either on-line or submitted as an attachment to an email. We prefer new works, but will consider licensing existing works from established artists. One of our graphic artists will place the Right text for you, or you can do it yourself if you wish. Please let me know in advance which Right you intend to submit, artists. Email [email protected].

All artists will retain copyright and receive a decent sized honorarium. For you emerging artists, just desserts for your years of toil. For the more established artists, a pittance, but we are hoping that you get on board because of the cause (nearly half of the youth in care in BC are Aboriginal) rather than the money.

We are also considering still photos / video of youth in their regalia for augmented reality posters (with smart phones. See http://www.ted.com/talks/matt_mills_image_recognition_that_triggers_augmented_reality.html for an example). So if you live in Vancouver and are interested please send an email to [email protected].

And lastly, if you’re a professional Aboriginal photographer and you have your own camera and lights we might have some work for you.

We hope you continue to find us relevant to youth’s needs,
