Design Opportunity - "The People's History"

Please see the following message sent by Family Alliance Ontario:


Dear Members, Affiliates, Survivors, Families:


As you may know, Family Alliance Ontario has a project that will provide the opportunity for survivors to tell their stories about their life in one of the institutions run by the province.  The stories relayed through whatever format works best for the person will help to build a travelling exhibit so that the information can be passed to many people throughout Ontario.  It is a large project and while it has taken a while to get it up and running, we are excited about what we have been learning so far. 


As this project is a living legacy, we wanted to create a crest that will be available to participants in our project.  As this is the People’s History we want the crest/logo to be designed by you.  We are looking at a 3” round crest with a maximum of 3 colours depicting what this project means to you, the survivors, and/or the people of Ontario.  


In order to help us understand your design more fully, please provide your thoughts along with your design. 


Please submit any ideas / designs to the Steering Committee through the Project 

email learnfrompeopleshistory@gmail.com by July 27th.  This is your opportunity to get involved with this amazing and important project.  To learn more about the project, check out this page on the Family Alliance Ontario website.  http://family-alliance.com/the-peoples-history.html.  


I am looking forward to seeing many wonderful designs. 


Joyce Balaz,

Steering Committee Chair
