MAPC’s Creative COVID-19 Communications Launch

In 2021, The Metropolitan Area Planning Council’s Arts & Culture and Public Health teams partnered with local artists and designers to produce creative, culturally resonant communications about COVID-19 and vaccinations.

MAPC hired nine artists and artist groups to create materials encouraging under-served communities to get vaccinated. As one of the nine artists, I chose the Cantonese/Hong Kong slang 加油! Add Oil! to be the rallying cry for the community to get their vaccine and to stay safe. The comics, animated gifs, prints, and web graphics are designed to connect to the Chinese immigrant community.

These materials are available for public use. Municipalities, health agencies, community groups, and members of the public can freely use them to encourage vaccinations in their communities.

MAPC’s Arts & Culture and Public Health Creative COVID-19 Communications Grant

Great news to share: I received a grant opportunity from Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) to produce creative, culturally resonant communications about COVID-19 and vaccinations.

It’s the perfect art opportunity fit considering the recent comic work I’ve been creating highlighting life during the pandemic and my interest in sharing vaccine information.

I’m super excited and looking forward to this project.
