Get Active!

Everything is Okay is a site/design group that distributes “Activist Kits” as tools for people to create commentary in their environment. The central element is a roll of of police-style tape with the repeated phrase “everything is okay”, a sort of giant interactive caption. The kit also contains postcards, buttons, labels and stickers. “We set out to assemble a list of resources that would point people to positive action. Today, Everything is Okay exists as a kind of social design experiment in subversive positivism and provides everyday citizens with tools for social commentary. Up for a People’s Design Award, vote for this project at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Awards site. Truly love the whole concept and design behind this. (Thanks Christopher!)
