The Public partnered with the McGill University Social Equity and Diversity Education (SEDE) Office to develop a series of friendly and accessible posters promoting anti-oppression on campus. The posters introduce some of the misconceptions around equality and sameness, racism, and safer spaces, specifically as it relates to labour at school. 

The posters will be around campus this fall, accompanying trainings, and we just got word that a series of videos inspired by the themes and artwork are in the works, as well!

The Public partnered with Unifor to create an infographic addressing youth unemployment and precarious work in Canada. The pieces, produced in French and English, paint a bleak landscape, and call for change through organized labour and solidarity. 

Through a host of creative interventions, 13 artists and collectives re-imagine the material and ideological foundations of Scarborough’s historyic Guild of all Arts and surrounding greenspace. Multiple outdoor installations and four days of live events, produce counter-histories of place, home and memory. 


The Public was thrilled to work with SUM° on developing the promotional materials for this exciting event, including postcards, programme and website. For more information, visit www.restlessprecinct.ca and we can’t wait to see you at the site!

Look what we found! The window of the Condom Shack on Queen St. West in Toronto has been taken over by This is our community, our bisexual anti-stigma campaign. While some time has passed from the initial campaign launch in August 2011, we’re happy that the message of solidarity and unity among LGBTQ community members is still resonating!
