Art and design to promote healthy masculinity with the help of technology
Team Lead: Simon Boas
We are currently creating a campaign to foster constructive conversations about positive masculinity and sexual consent. Through a multi-tiered approach, we will address these issues with a combination of art, design, and technology.
- A targeted Facebook ad campaign combined with site-specific projections and printed posters to show that sexual assault is not solely perpetrated by misogynists.
- A browser extension that brings problematic statements buried in dating profiles to the front page.
- An educational card game about positive dating culture developed with support from TESA Collective (Toolbox For Education and Social Action).
- A traveling exhibition to showcase these conversations.
MidGray Collective is looking for funding to support our work developing these projects, including production costs, application and travel expenses for conferences, and web-hosting fees. We welcome mentorship in the areas of creative non-profit organization development and educational outreach. Please contact Simon Boas if you are interested in working with us.
