Making Hope Visual

The Embassy of Argentina in Canada and Library and Archives Canada cordially invite you to Making Hope Visual, a design exhibition presenting a selection of cross-cultural posters by the Argentine graphic designer Matías Delfino.

About the exhibit

The traveling exhibit includes United Nations posters that bring the message of the Organization to life. In communicating ideas across borders through the universal language of design, these posters all address the same challenge: being equally understood by people of different cultures who speak different languages. These images work as agents of social change to improve people’s lives in every corner of the world.
