Love Intersections

Project Description

Love Intersections started as a blog project between several queer people of colour (QTIPOC) who were looking for an avenue to respond to the racism experienced from and within the queer community. As a group of cutiePOC activists, artists, and friends, we find reprieve in creative and meaningful ways to build solidarity across communities through the language of love and empathy.
Our passion for social justice ties together our multifaceted dimensions of identities ranging from feminist, sex positive, racialized, settler-colonial and queer experiences. Our work is situated on the unceded, occupied, ancestral and traditional lands of the Coast Salish peoples – with gratitude for the Musqueum, Squamish, Stó:lo and Tsleil-Waututh nations.
At the heart of our project, Love Intersections fundamentally operates from an anti-oppression framework – where we extend our lens to share stories of people living, breathing, surviving and dancing in the social margins. In order to promote visibility and intersectional representation on people navigating differences in race, class, gender, sexuality, dis/ability, age, spirit and spirituality, we invite you in to make artful social change with us through the radical act of storytelling.
We embrace our collective evolution – revolution – as flawed and complex human beings who fall and make mistakes. We can only hope to pick ourselves up, elevate one another, cultivate compassion, make more mistakes, and tell our stories.
Hello Cool World's David Ng is co-founder of this project.

Fish & Condom Card

Project Description

This one is a blast from the past! Still one of our favorites, this fish card was done for Deltassist Family Services in our very first year of business. We focus tested a group of young women (their target market) and this concept was born. We found the design was also popular with gay men! 

Honouring Our Journey

"Don't Forget What's Inside" - LACE PSA

Project Description

Hello Cool World created a unique transmedia campaign for BC Cancer Agency. The first of its kind to use social media, short film, and grassroots outreach, LACE Campaign (Live Aware, Create Empowerment) turned the tables on the world of ‘ribbon’ branding, and made Pap tests fun (or at least not so bad). In 2011, we received an Award of Excellence in Health Promotion from the BC Medical Association.
 
This is the LACE Campaign PSA that aired for Pap Awareness Week 2010 on Fashion File and Amerca's Next Top Model.

Picturing Transformation Nexw'áyantsut - Book

Project Description

Hello Cool World founder Katherine Dodds, along with artist photographer Nancy Bleck and Squamish Nation Chief Bill Williams have authored this gorgeous coffee-table book that is filled with Nancy Bleck's photographic artwork. Bleck, along with Williams and the late John Clarke, co-founded the Uts'am Witness Project in 1997. This book showcases artwork from before, during and after this decades long project and tells the story of how this cross cultural collaboration resulted in the saving of a rainforest, now returned to its' ancestral name of Nexw'átantsut, meaning 'place of transformation." We also produced multiple short films to share the story.

"HIV is not the end of the world" - Poster Series

Project Description

LACE - First Nations Focus

Project Description

Hello Cool World created a unique transmedia campaign for BC Cancer Agency. The first of its kind to use social media, short film, and grassroots outreach, LACE Campaign (Live Aware, Create Empowerment) turned the tables on the world of ‘ribbon’ branding, and made Pap tests fun (or at least not so bad). In 2011, we received an Award of Excellence in Health Promotion from the BC Medical Association.

In 2010, Lee Anne Deneault won our LACE Campaign ad contest with a concept from her community based on cards with reasons to get your Pap. We travelled to Q'wemptsín Health Society in Kamloops where we did a photoshoot and a video. The materials we created were used to promote Pap Awareness Week all over BC that year. We made a short video, postcards, posters and even had a full page ad in Chatelaine Magazine. Even though the LACE campaign was meant for all women in BC, we were very pleased to have had a high percentage of First Nations communities sign on.
