Active with Dementia

Supporting a person who has dementia to remain active and still feel
involved in life can be the key to maintaining quality of life even into
the later stages of the illness. This is not just the job of an activity
organiser or an entertainer, it is also part of every person’s role,
whether you are a friend or relative, a home or day care worker, a
nurse, a care assistant, a manager or a domestic worker.

Turkish Delight

We feel honored to have worked with Danish PEN and the Association of Danish Cartoonists on this book.

“Turkish Delight” is drawing attention to the assault on freedom of speech under the administration of President Erdoğan. Turkey ranks 154th among 180 countries on the World Press Freedom Index. To this day, translators, editors, publishers, poets and writers face criminal proceedings and even imprisonment for legitimate expression

We are proud to have designed the book and contributed with the cover art. All profits from sales will support imprisoned writers and cartoonists.

Behind the Seams

You Are What You Wear is a campaign celebrating individuality produced for Behind the Seams, an organization dedicated to improving the conditions of workers in the international fashion industry and to raise awareness about the environmental impact of the industry. The catalogue of full-body fashion photographs is our tribute to the remarkable diversity in the way people from around the globe dress and to the individuality of sartorial taste. Everybody wants to look stylish. Everybody wants to express who they are through what they wear. Our clothes can give us the power to present ourselves as sexy, rich, intellectual, feminine, masculine or any other attitude or identity we want. But there are other and more ponderous reasons to why it’s important to think about what we’re wearing.

A Gift For Life

Anyone who’s seen kids on a playground knows that most are naturally physically active and love to move around. But what might not be apparent is that climbing to the top of a slide or swinging from the monkey bars can help lead kids to a lifetime of being active.

As they get older, it can be a challenge for kids to get enough daily activity. Reasons include increasing demands of school, a feeling among some kids that they aren’t good at sports, a lack of active role models, and busy working families. In spite of these barriers, parents can instill a love of activity and help kids fit it into their everyday lives. Doing so can set healthy patterns that will last into adulthood. It’s a gift for life.

LGBT

Transgender people face staggering levels of poverty, discrimination, and violence. In 2016, 27 transgender people were killed. Since January 1, 2017, eight transgender women of color have been murdered.

According to the “2015 U.S. Trans Survey,” a report by the National Center for Transgender Equality:

29% of transgender people live in poverty, compared to 14% of the general population
30% of transgender people report being homeless at some point in their lives, with 12% saying it was within the past 12 months
Transgender people experience unemployment at 3x the rate of the general population, with rates for people of color up to 4x the national unemployment rate
30% of transgender people report being fired, denied a promotion, or experiencing mistreatment in the workplace due to their gender identity in the past 12 months
31% of transgender people experienced mistreatment in the past year in a place of public accommodation, including 14% who were denied equal service, 24% who were verbally harassed, and 2% who were physically attacked because they were transgender
40% of respondents reported attempting suicide in their lifetime, nearly nine times the attempted suicide rate in the United States (4.6%)

LGBT

There are still too many places where lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people are targeted for harassment and violence. There are still too many young people out there feeling hopeless and alone.

Cultural Diversity

May 21 is World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development. The day provides us with an opportunity to reflect and combat polarization and stereotypes, and to improve understanding among people from different cultures. 

PEN International

PEN was one of the world’s first non-governmental organisations and amongst the first international bodies advocating for human rights. PEN were the first worldwide association of writers, and the first organisation to point out that freedom of expression and literature are inseparable – a principle they continue to champion today and which is expressed in their Charter, a signature document 22 years in the making from its origins in 1926 and ratification at the 1948 Congress in Copenhagen.
