Tolerance Show in Beirut, Lebanon

On November 29 the Tolerance Poster Show was open at D Beirut, Dora. The show was part of AdPulse creative day, which is organized by ArabAd and hosted by Hopscotch and was supported
by Académie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts (Alba) and PrintWorks.

Due to limited amount of space not all posters were displayed, for similar reasons some posters were printed smaller to maximize space efficiency. Unfortunately in the process of installing posters a few were displayed upside down. Despite all of this the show was a big success. After the show the organizer will continue to use existing print outs to show at different schools in Beirut. 

All this was made possible by the generous efforts of Ghada Azzi.

Tolerance Poster Opening in Timisoara, Romania

The Tolerance Poster Show has officially opened in Timisoara, Romania, and the reaction was very positive. 5 different locations around the city showcased the posters in creative environments and lent itself well to visitors and photographs. Thank you to Ovidiu & Silvia Hrin and the volunteers at Typopassage TM for the hard work and putting immense effort into the show for citizens and visitors and more to see for themselves. This trip would also not have been possible without the generous support of Denise Benmosche.

"Path of Tolerance" at Binghamton University, NY, US

The Tolerance Poster Show, or "Path of Tolerance" opened on September 29th at Binghamton University in New York. This was the first major Tolerance Poster show, with over 90 posters, to appear in the United States. Because of lack of vertical space to display the posters, Professor of Binghamton's Art and Design department Blazo Kovacevic organized the show with a unique idea - placing the posters as stickers on the campus grounds on a grid. This concept was surprisingly effective, visually, and got a great reaction from visitors.

Stolen Tolerance posters in Chelyabinsk

The second night after the opening of the show, someone cut and stole 10 of the posters. The people there don't think this was done out of hate but rather "just" a crime of admiration. Unfortunately, this "admiration" means other people lost the opportunity to see the work in person. Below is the organizer's statement.

"ON TOLERANCE AND GOOD TASTE At the opening of the Tolerance Poster Show in Chelyabinsk I said that any exhibition on such theme as tolerance, especially when you do it outside, in town, is a kind of indicator, test for the society, because any reaction shows whether we are ready to be tolerant or not. And I think we’ve got extremely great reaction on this exhibition from the youth yesterday morning. You can see this reaction on the photos. Some of them liked posters of world-renowned graphic designers so much, that they've decided to steal them on the second night of the exhibition. Judging by the posters they took we can confident…
