A college Spring Break vacation also comes with its own issues relating to sexual exploitation and objectification, abuse of power, body shaming, sexual assault, harassment, aggressive behaviors, and more. So GGBB wants to set out with YOU to challenge the unhealthy culture of college Spring Break by making a GGBB-style activist art poster (the poster will be in a listicle format, i.e. bullet point one-liners. See example: http://guerrillagirlsbroadband.com/projects/abortion/advantages-no-choice-whatsoever). We'd like to hear from current college students about their Spring Break concerns. Feel free to call out classic Spring Break tropes and experiences that maim college students’ vacation experiences. And we are certainly interested in hearing from a diverse student body (we love intersectionalism). The poster is a great platform to raise awareness regarding issues that might not be obvious to others. The title of the poster is "The Spring Break You Won’t Regret to Remember," and we are looking for students to submit GGBB-styled poster bylines to go under the title.
DEADLINE: February 10, 2019.
