Group Q ARE YOU AWARE

We are Events Q and we are working with Without A Home (WOAH), a student - led homeless charity based at MMU. We are going to be raising awareness through mapping of citywide initiatives that can provide immediate support for the existing homeless community in Manchester. Are you aware that mapping is defined as visual architecture that strategically selects, translates, organises and shapes space. Mapping is a tool that is taken for granted by designers. It is an informative research method to visualise and communicate a set of data. Are you aware that Risograph is an environmentally friendly and cost effective printer, which uses soy-based inks to produce unique outcomes. As designers we are expected to have a range of creative skills to broaden our communicative methods to utilise in practice and the practical world. We are aiming to experiment, teach and learn through this event by making an immediate difference in our community through design. // Download Poster

Did you know that there are nine cafes (including starbucks!) that offer their customers to pay for suspended coffees that rough sleepers can access? It is these sorts of initiatives we are hoping to discover and highlight with the city of Manchester so that everyone knows how to help and access them!

We have started to compile knowledge and resources that will help us to create a mapping of the many great initiatives available for the existing homeless community in Manchester. Next, we will be looking in to local charities and shops that also provide both short and long term solutions, enabling us to create an informational poster and pamphlet to be handed out to all those that are effected by homelessness and for those who are willing to give a little back!

Are you aware that there are only 11 colours available for Riso print? The printer however picks up various beautiful shades and that is when the fun begins...

Take a look at our session plan! Over the two weeks we plan to research, analyse and present a knowledge database that is yet to have been published before! We'll even have a look at interesting new production techniques such as rise printing! #AreYouAware
