The Mankato Aktion Club Theatre is collaborative Community Theatre for Self-Advocates and their Allies. The club focus revolves around: Social Justice issues related to disabilities, raising community awareness about issues people with disabilities face, embracing everyone’s abilities within the group, and sharing everyone’s gifts and talents. 

Bradley Coulter and I collaborated on this fun broadsheet for the Aktion Club's poetry event at the Arts Center of Saint Peter. To make this broadsheet feel personal for each member of the club we hosted a sketching night where club members drew out their ideas about what a beautiful community meant. We took used those sketches as direct inspiration for the forms within the poster. 

Bradley Coulter is responsible for the beautiful typography and custom ligatures.
