Everpress has joined forces with Amnesty International to raise awareness about censorship. The two organizations have commissioned 50 artists to design 50 limited-edition T-shirts, with 50 percent of proceeds from sales going to the artists and 50 percent going to Amnesty to fight against censorship worldwide.
The “50/50 Project” features artists and designers such as BRICK, Joy Miessi, A.CE, Dexter Navy, and Liam Hodges. The tees will tackle topics such as censorship, mass surveillance, and media through illustrated, photo-print, and graffiti-inspired designs.
“Censorship is often the thin end of the wedge when it comes to human rights violations,” says Amnesty International UK director Kate Allen. “Time and time again, we’ve seen cases of brave human rights defenders in repressive countries being subjected to censorship, then threatened and harassed, and then finally jailed or even killed.”
The “50/50 Project” tees will go on display at London’s Protein Studios tomorrow and will be on sale until June 28. Each T-shirt costs £25 (approximately $33).
