Golden Women’s Resource Centre looking for designs

From now until Aug. 23, the centre is accepting designs for their T-shirt Design Contest.

The Golden Women’s Resource Centre is inviting you to put your mark on the organization.

From now until Aug. 23, the centre is accepting designs for their T-shirt Design Contest.

The winning applicant will have their art work displayed on T-shirts that will be sold at various events as a fundraiser for the women’s centre.

“It’s an idea that the women’s centre has had for a while,” said Jordan Trotter, a summer student who has been with the centre for just over a month now.

“We haven’t really had the time, so with Jordan here she took the lead,” said Melanie Myers, executive director of the centre.

“It’s going to be a fundraiser for us. So we’ll have them printed, and they’ll be for sale at different events.”

The money raised from the T-shirt sales will go towards keeping the Golden Women’s Resource Centre programs operating throughout the year. They will be on sale at women’s centre events, as well as the centre itself.

The design should portray women and what the women’s centre represents to the artist and the community. It should be positive, and contain appropriate language and images.

Other than that, let your creativity guide you. All colours are acceptable, and the colour of the T-shirts themselves will likely depend on what goes best with the winning design.

“People can send designs to my email, or bring it in. They can draw, and we’ll get a graphic designer to put it onto a computer. Or they can try to do it themselves,” said Trotter.

The deadline for design submissions is Aug. 23. You can email designs to, or drop them off at the centre at 419C 9th Ave. N.
