"Globally over 2.5 billion people do not have somewhere safe, private or hygienic to go to the toilet. Poor sanitation disproportionately affects women over men, impacting their health, dignity and safety. The developed world takes a bathroom—a private place to tend to our biological needs for granted. Through proposed vinyl infographics installed on the inside of bathroom stalls around Temple University’s campus, an awareness campaign was established. Each wall featured different aspects of the issue with a final call to action that allowed students to text and donate via their mobile devices." Noopur Argwal; The Bottom Line

Sensory Creative, based in Australia, worked with the Young Carers department of Carers NSW.

"We created a new suite of program collateral based around a superhero theme. The original design development was so well received internally that a joint initiative with Avant Card resulted in a city wide postcard distribution centred around the campaign headline “Who Cares?

In the UK, Young Carers celebrated their first national day #YoungCarersDay on June 13th 2014. Recently, an article published in The Telegraph reported “Today’s teenage girls will dedicate 9 years of their lives to unpaid care" and the burden of care is still falling disproportionately on women in their 50s

Amani Music Festival is the first festival for peace to be organised in the African Great Lakes Region. “Amani” is the Swahili word for “peace” and this is very much our point: music soothes the soul and brings people together. The festival, which had been scheduled to take place in 2013 was cancelled because of clashes between Congo’s army and M23 rebels.”
