Giving Voice is a partnership between Access Gallery and professional graphic designers from the greater Denver Metro Area. The program is designed to empower teens living with disabilities to give voice to a social cause that's important to them. Working with professional graphic design mentors, the teens share their views on a significant cause and in partnership, they work to develop and produce a graphic image that captures their views and commitment to critical social issues. This collaborative model has received national attention and has inspired other states from Texas to New York. This exhibition highlights 40 posters from the past ten years of the program, and subjects range from addiction to hunger, school bullying to suicide prevention, and from immigration to climate change.
