Contre la Charte des valeurs

Working with the FARD (Féministes anti-racistes détonant.e.s) collective, I designed a series of typographic posters in opposition to the proposed Quebec Charter of Values and its inherent racist agenda. Produced as part of the latest issue of the .dpi journal, the goal of the series is to render public opposition more visible within the city’s cultural venues and in the streets.


The posters were launched at La Centrale at an event kicking off their 40th anniversary, and are now being distributed through informal collaborations with spaces and groups throughout the city that share feminist and anti-racist values.




It was important for the collective that the series also work effectively as street posters. We wanted to create a strong link between “institutional” opposition from artist-run centres and anger and resistance in the streets. We’re also working to get these onto protest placards for the Anti-charter demonstration on the 21st of March.





The posters were printed by La Presse du Chat Perdu, with a hand-mixed split fountain neon-orange/pink.

Religion is not a race.

Merci David!

And Jean, if you think that a bill that is based on identitary nationalism, exclusionary practices, and the absurd fear of muslim fundamentalism doesn’t effect Asian, Arab and African people in a completely disproportionate and harmful way, then you’re a dork.
