Posters Empowering Community: An historical snaphot of poster artmarking

The Posters Empowering Community Exhibition will be held at North Adelaide Community Centre throughout November and December 2017.

Transport yourself to an era before digital social media when the poster was used as a political tool to communicate the community’s social conscience.

Social and political posters produced in SA from the 1970s to the 1990s are featured in an exhibition displaying a historical snapshot of Co-Media and Community Arts Network (CAN) and other organisations behind this important movement of politically motivated poster making.

Many posters were sold during and following the exhibition in May 2017 ‘Posters Empowering Community’ at the Kerry Packer Gallery, Bob Hawke Primeministerial Centre UniSA during South Australia’s History Festival.  That exhibition has now closed and posters remaining for sale can be purchased here.

The sale of these posters will assist the Peace Foundation to continue their valuable support to artists representing social justice, human rights and environmental sustainability issues through art. 

A selection of these posters will be displayed at the North Adelaide Community Centre (176 Tynte Street North Adelaide (enter through the library)) from November to 3 December 2017– opening hours 10am – 4pm Mon-Fri and at the Tynte Street Christmas Market Sunday 3 December 10am – 3pm.
