Our comics and illustrations want to highlight 6 critical aspects regularly overlooked when discussing prevention and HIV, and to create immersive and interactive exhibitions!
Your art could support us in affirming once again that HIV can not – and indeed it should not – be reduced to an exclusively medical issue! Rather, it is something that encompasses our social relations and emotional spheres. This should be the starting point of any prevention campaign aiming at influencing sexual behaviour. We do not believe in cold and scientific, yet informative, slides. On the contrary we are firmly convinced that unexpected and unforgettable art, capable of surprising and touching the emotions of the recipient can create true change.
The widespread embarrassment and awkwardness felt when talking openly about sex, and the ever present trauma that AIDS represented in our collective conscience, remain to date the two main reasons why people don’t get tested. Moreover, if mixed with the overwhelming outdated ignorance that surrounds HIV you end up with the unbearable stigma lived everyday by people living with HIV.
Help us fight HIV.
Help us struggle stigma.
Help us break silence and taboos.
