RIchardson institute work
As part of the Richardson Institute, to commend the end of our internship, we were assigned the task of creating a poster, which summarised the work that we have done in our project placement. For us, this was about the experience we have gratefully had- so far- in working for Mobilise!
For this poster, we focused on the subject of resistance, a theme that is at the heart of this project, which we wanted to translate physically. This was done through the use of placards, to recreate a protest of our own, in light of the stories that we have collected and become inspired by.
This poster has been organised into five main categories. The first, provides a summary of the Mobilise! project, which includes its partnership between Remembering Resistance and Global Links. From there, we incorporated the four main headlines of the Activism by the Numbers Retreat: Discover, Delve, Democratise, and Deploy. These four headlines contextualise the four steps that we have undergone:
Discover: to collect and listen to stories of resistance and protest.
Delve: to find online guides on social resistance and turn this into qualitative data, which identifies the leading patterns of successful activism.
Democratise: to combine these two data sources and collaborate together, and with our community partners, in deciding creative outputs that will put these findings into an engaging and interactive format.
Deploy: to put into practice with our community partners and make change.
We hope you enjoy our poster, and we are excited to continue volunteering for Mobilise!
