Poster for Tomorrow

Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” 4tomorrow is an independent non-profit organization based in Paris whose goal is to encourage people both inside and outside of the design community to make posters to stimulate debate on issues facing us all. Recently Poster for Tomorrow has organized a series of free design workshops in design schools in Africa that develop skills and help make voices heard. Check out the video created during the ESAV Marrakech workshop below.

Posters for Tomorrow has also created an app (download here) which not only helps showcase the work of student around the world, but proceeds from the app go to support their programming. You can learn much more about what Poster for Tomorrow is up to in Africa HERE!
