AGDA Poster Annual 2011

Posted on August 17, 2011

The theme for the 2011 AGDA Poster Annual is “Inspired by Music”. Entrants are invited to be inspired and interpret this theme however they wish.


As we all struggle the understand the reasons behind the London riots my poster tries to pose a few questions about the spark that started the fire.

Are the rioters in London expressing their exasperation at feeling that they’re falling through the cracks (as Martin Luther King said “A riot is the language of the unheard”), or are they just common thugs being opportunistic? Does the limited and often abusive environment in which these people are raised lead to outcomes like this? Or does the blame sit squarely with those that are kicking in the windows?

All I know is that if I ever have a son, I think I’m gonna name him Bill or George! Anything but Sue!
