Popularis Changing Attitudes Posters

In 2005, Popularis initiated a competition for students on the BTec Graphic Design course to design anti racism posters in a competition sponsored by the Communication Workers Union.  Over the years this has developed to a campaign to change attitudes to racism, disability, mental health, equal pay and Leicester Riverside.  The purpose is to send a clear message to encourage respect and tolerance for everyone.

The posters have been distributed by several unions, and exhibitions have been arranged at union conferences, the TUC, Leicester City Football Club, UNI Europe and the EI World Conferences.

Posters are displayed in workplaces, colleges, schools, police stations, prisons, community centres all around the country.

Posters continue to be designed each year by students aged between 18 and 20, many of whom go on to study graphic design at higher education and to work in the print industry.
