Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Poster Exhibition

Voices and Visions of Arizona creatives

AIGA AZ announces the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Poster Exhibition, a call to creatives during Phoenix Design Week 2020. We invite you to share your voices about what Diversity, Equity & Inclusion means to you in our creative community. How does it show up in your life, profession, and creativity?

The exhibition is part of a process our chapter is exploring to define and create dialogues and safe spaces where all are welcome. Entries will be showcased on AIGA AZ’s Flickr gallery and unveiled at the PHXDW 2020 Closing Party.


Creatives (designers, fine artists, photographers, makers, students) from the state of Arizona can submit to be showcased in our online gallery.


How do we create change, awareness, dialogue, and impact? Subjects can include but are not limited to, community progress and opportunities, the struggles and celebration of diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice in the creative professional industry, or personal storytelling.
