We are publishing our book! It a beautiful anthology that we will launch in Spring 2012. It will be on sale and we plan to present it to the Prime Minister and other leading politicians to remind them of The Future That We Choose.

We would like to invite you to contribute to it by illustrating one of the ‘futures’ that we have collected. We have a tight turnaround on this as we need all artwork to consider by 30th November.

If you are interested please email us with subject Artwork to info@thinkactvote.org and let us know which future you would like to work on. Please include a URL link to your portfolio or any work you have online. We only want one piece of artwork for each ‘future’ so we will let you know if it is still available. (Ones marked pink have already been chosen by an artist.)

You will need to send the finished artwork at large scale and 300DPI by the deadline. All artwork will be featured on our website, and subject to editing in the book too! You will receive a full credit for your work online and in print, and retain the copyright.

“The Future I Choose is one where creative talent and resources are utilised to close the widening gap between the rich and the poor. Where diversity transcends from a tick box and unites people in celebrating difference. A future where young and old are given equality of opportunity and social capital is this and next seasons new trends. It is a time where being great and celebrating the success of those from tomorrow is embraced, enjoyed and unleashed. The future I choose is one where we say I am proud to be a part of that.” Justice Williams

“I choose a future….where we’re reacquainted with the politics of equality and want to get involved.

“I would like to see a world in which every person can fulfill their potential without being bounded by race, class, gender or geography. That means removing more than physical constraints – it involves removing psychological ones too.

I want everyone to choose their own future, and to believe they can get there.” Rowenna Davis

“The Future I Choose is is green. Not just a colour. Not just a political party. Not just a term for naivety! It’s a philosophy and a creative, experimental, cutting edge, super-sexy approach to life and lifestyle that is what the 21st century will be all about. Where we live, how we work together, how we get around, what we eat, where it grows, what fuels our fires, warms our hearts and inspires our minds – all are up for grabs…we’re beginning to realise consuming ever vaster quantities of ‘stuff’ ain’t making us happier (and we certainly can’t eat money), and that unequal societies make us sick – physically and mentally. The Future I choose is in tune with the earth beneath our feet, recognises us as people not just consumers and celebrates our collective potential to do the right thing. And I think we might even get there!” Ed Gillespie

“I would like to see a future where we had the dictionary definition of democracy, government by the people, for the people and tolerating minority views. Politicians are a vested interest group only in politics to get re-elected, we should let them know by letter and email what our views are and tell them that if they don’t represent our views in parliament we wont vote for them next time.We need to get our elected representatives to represent the majority view of there constituency on every issue, no more towing the party line and being forced to vote with the government.We can do this by having national and constituency referenda and a civil service to implement them and administer the country according to the results.If we had had this, we wouldn’t have had an illegal war in Iraq, with thousands of innocent lives lost. We wouldn’t be cutting much needed A&E’s. We wouldn’t be having to cut child benefit so we can pay bankers bonuses. Its our country and we as citizens should decide how its run, its our money, we should decide how it is spent. We can use our vote to get the country we want.” Katharine Hamnett
