Orte des Respekts



"In Österreich engagieren sich viele tausende Menschen für ein besseres Zusammenleben. Die „Orte“, an denen diese Menschen etwas Besonderes für unser Zusammenleben tun - egal ob in einer Region, Gemeinde, Straße oder online - sind „Orte des Respekts“.
Der Verein Respekt.net hat es sich gemeinsam mit der Raiffeisen Bank International zum Ziel gesetzt, die Projekte sichtbar zu machen und die Menschen, die dahinter stehen, vor den Vorhang zu bitten und auszuzeichnen. Deshalb zeichnet der Wettbewerb Orte des Respekts Menschen aus, die durch Eigeninitiative und Engagement die Zivilgesellschaft nachhaltig gestalten und stärken. Ziel ist es aufzuzeigen, wie viel Engagement es in Österreich gibt, Projekte bekannt zu machen, die anderen als Anregungen und Vorbilder dienen können und Mut zu machen, eigene Ideen umzusetzen."

Tolerance Posters | designmonat graz 2018



"Design triggers emotions which are located between aversion and approval, enthusiasm and disappointment, outrage and indifference. Yet, who is the one to say what is beautiful? Who says what works for whom and why? And who judges good taste – and why?
Design is also a question of tolerance. So, Designmonat Graz focuses on the topic of tolerance. It challenges and demands tolerance! And it also challenges you: with an interesting program, with an unusual graphic design and with a lot of design within 4 weeks!"

"How tolerant does design need to be? And what can design contribute to tolerance? The “Tolerance Posters” are original contributions by international designers and do provide extraordinary answers to these questions. The touring exhibition has already been hosted in the USA, as well as in Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Serbia, Spain and the Netherlands. It was always displayed in public spaces, hence, locations where tolerance is experienced, discussed and questioned. At each station, the number of exhibits is expanded by a local piece: Herms Fritz, artist and graphic designer from Graz, expands the international show for Austria."

I have not seen Lukasz since the night we filmed him in 2011. He told me he was moving on from Manchester as it was only a stop off on his journey. (Mike Staniforth, YouTube)
