Opportunity for New York community organizations, advocacy groups, and designers to collaborate on public policy publications. The purpose of this program is to address complex public policy issues and to promote social justice. The publications focus on systems, policies, and processes that need visual explanation, and where the lack of understanding of this issue is leading to social injustice. The Foundation seeks groups who work directly with the constituency impacted by these issues and who can distribute the completed Making Policy Public directly to that audience. Applicants must be able to attend meetings in New York City.
CUP is seeking collaborators for the next four issues of Making Policy Public. Making Policy Public is an 8-10 month long collaboration of CUP staff, a designer (or design team), and an organization advocating for community change, resulting in the creation of a foldout poster that breaks down a complex policy issue.
CUP defines public policy broadly. Topics can address policies (for example, rent stabilization law), systems (for example, how juvenile justice works), or processes (for example, applying for asylum). The explanation of the policy, system, or process must meet a social justice goal and the needs of an underrepresented community (including low-income, immigrant, and communities of color, among others).
In addition, CUP seeks talented graphic designers, illustrators, and infographic designers with an interest in bringing unique visual solutions to the design challenges presented by complex policy issues. Designers collaborate with CUP and an advocacy organization to create great design that has social impact.
