This is the first exhibition dedicated solely to the highly acclaimed multi-media design campaign, Green Patriot Posters, that will bring together more than 100 of the best contemporary poster designs promoting sustainability with a series of events, workshops and screenings.
The exhibition is produced by The Canary Project, an arts collaborative that addresses climate change and the need for a new economy. Posters from the campaign have been included in bus ads, billboards, magazines, a published book and museum exhibitions. So far, the campaign has reached 4-5 million people.
