To kick-start 2021, we are pleased to launch our new iDiversity Poster Project. We want to encourage diversity and inclusion for all and our idea is to use a creative approach in the form of a series of posters.
We are also interested in supporting the Arts & Culture sector and for this project we have collaborated with a creative poster designer, Martin Thake of Deltanova to develop the first series of abstract and innovative posters.
These posters have been designed to make a statement whether that is in the workplace, at home, or any public place and to add as a prompt to encourage more thought and debate. Our aim is that the iDiversity posters reflect our values and will open up discussion and debate on the key themes of inclusion and change for good.
The iDiversity posters aim to be a colourful way to brighten up any space and grab the attention of whoever enters the room. To purchase a poster you can visit the iDiversity Shop.
iDiversity are proud to have sponsored the Tech4Good Arts & Culture Award 2020 Project.
What are the Tech4Good Awards?
The Tech4Good Awards recognise organisations and individuals who use digital technology to improve the lives of others and make the world a better place. At iDiversity we want to share and raise awareness of how technology can overcome challenges, this is a new and inspiring category looking at Arts and Culture.
The Arts and Culture sector align with iDiversity’s ethos of inclusion, where we can celebrate different backgrounds and abilities coming together on common grounds, boasting opportunity for learning and creativity.
The winner of the Tech4Good Awards is the Artist Support Pledge, which was created and executed by the artist Matthew Burrows. It is designed to build a generous culture of artists and buyers and create a sustainable economy for artists and makers.
Artists post pictures of their art for sale on their Instagram account, costing £200 or less, with the hashtag #artistsupportpledge. Anyone interested can purchase the artwork through direct message. For every £1,000 of sales an artist makes, they pledge to reinvest £200 in the scheme, supporting a continuing flow of sales.
The finalists included Barnsley Museums, Graeae Theatre Company, Hatsumi, and the Universal Viewer.
