www.binayaksen.net and www.tasveerghar.net call upon netizens and all those interested anywhere to make posters on the theme of ‘Another India is Possible’. The idea is to encourage artists and others to think afresh of what a positive vision of a future India could be like- in an imaginative, constructive but provocative way.
The posters could be digitally produced or hand-made but they need to be available in soft copy form to be put up on a specially created website for this purpose. Some of the suggested topics are: (a) Democracy (b) Justice (c) Dignity (d) Human Rights (e) Children (f) Indigenous People (g) Gender (h) Access to Health (i) Safe Environment (j) Social Harmony.
The campaign will culminate on 31st January 2009 and the best 50 posters will be compiled into a ‘Visual Election Manifesto’ to be presented to all the political parties prior to the next national general elections. A panel of eminent artists and social activists will vet the posters and special prizes will be announced during the campaign for the best poster (s) in different categories.
