Meet | Market : Get Out the Vote
September 30, 2008 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM @ Tutto Mondo
Happy Hour: AIGA Style
MEET new people, make new friends and get to know the Charlotte design community. MARKET, network, share ideas and talk a little shop.
Election season is upon us, and that means it's time to exercise (your right to vote). So come, celebrate your civic duty with fellow Charlotte creatives. This month we'll be showcasing the winning nonpartisan posters from AIGA's "Get Out the Vote" Design for Democracy initiative. And although we can't promise to cut gas prices, stimulate the economy, end war, and unite the nation... we will be raffling off the posters!

Get Out the Vote
Get Out the Vote, an AIGA Design for Democracy initiative since the 2000 election, enables designers to engage in the public arena by contributing to a coordinated voter mobilization campaign. The 2008 poster campaign builds on the efforts made in 2004, when participants created more than 50,000 AIGA posters that were displayed in public places in communities across the nation and made available as online PDFs for anyone to download, print and post independently.
By motivating eligible citizens to register and turn out on election day, Get Out the Vote fulfills an ongoing AIGA objective of demonstrating the value of design to the public, public officials and business by providing a clear call to action for an activity that is important to everyone.
