CRIN FELLOWSHIP | RED CLOUD PROJECT

Fellowship Program at Child Rights International Network

Period Education Campaign, Publication Design, Illustration, Arduino Programming

As part of a design fellowship at CRIN, a children’s rights organisation that sought to communicate and tackle right issues through creative mediums, I started a campaign project called the Red Cloud Project alongside three other designers.

This project consisted of building the "Period Cloud", an interactive printing machine providing information on various topics within menstruation which we showcased at Tate Modern for International Women's Day, and co-authoring "From Your Big Sisters: A Guide on Periods and Everything Around It", an educational book on menstruation which you can read here. We have yet to launch the book due to COVID-19 and are currently discussing plans for the near future.

With my background in creative producing and illustration, my primary role for the Period Cloud was to manage and organize the day-to-day tasks for the fellowship. As for the book, I conducted an in-depth research on multifarious aspects of menstruation - a topic I initially had minimal knowledge on - and wrote the content and illustrated the anatomical diagams present in the book.

 

Through this project, we also received the opportunity to run a Period Tracking Bracelet workshop at MenstrUAL Festival, organised by UAL's Post-grad community, and feature in the Empower Period Podcast hosted by Irise International.

We have also created period-themed Augmented Reality filters, you can view them on our Instagram @riceboxstudio.

We had the opportunity to feature in the "Menstruation in the Media" episode of the Empower Period podcast series hosted by Acushla Young from Irise International and Dr Maria Tomlinson. We discussed about how menstruation is represented in the media, how media can be used to tackle period stigma, and how it's written within religions, alongside Sophia Luu, the co-founder of On the Mend.
