MAKE A STATEMENT: EXPLORE COMMUNITY

Photocopy and trim out copies of the template on p.16 of Participate to create a modular signage system. If you want the large circles to fit standard office labels (one inch round), blow it up to 155 percent. Note that if you prefer to use smaller round office labels, .75 inch diameter, blow up the copy to 122%.

The smaller circles can be filled in with color or patterns by hand. Construct letterforms using the big circles for large text and the little circles for small text. Distribute the panels to a group and then put them together to form a large display. Using this messaging system, encourage the group to express itself or promote a chosen cause. Let the modules become a catalyst for community.
