Artists, illustrators and designers: want to help Memphis get through COVID-19?
We know you’re just as passionate about Memphis as we are – and that’s why we need you and your talents to be part of our campaign to educate Memphians about staying safe and flattening the curve of COVID-19.
What to do: get creative
We’re coming to you because you can help communicate critical messages about COVID-19 in creative, memorable, effective ways. We’ve seen cities and states across the US come up with some pretty great memes to promote #socialdistancing and #saferathome – check out New Jersey’s with The Boss or Chicago’s with Mayor Lightfoot. Now let’s see Memphis creatives shine!
That’s where you come in: create a shareable image/meme that communicates the following messages:
Get tested – it’s free!
Stay home. Stay safe.
In case you need it, here’s a little more:
- Testing is now available for FREE to all Memphians. But you need to call ahead!
- You are safer at home. Stay home and save lives.
- Keep your distance, slow the spread.
- Stay at least 6 feet from other people
- Do not Gather in group
- Stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherins
