Peace and Justice Cards are a conceptual deck of cards that can be used to explore design ideas with communities across cultures and language barriers. They cover a range of themes, including places, people, objects, materials, and textures. By selecting images in response to prompts and queries, participants can create a photographic essay of the qualities of space they enjoy, reflect on the values they hold, and explore various emotions. They are a fast and easy way to elicit insights from participants in any gathering, and can be reused repeatedly with the same group of people with different results, or with different prompts.
This 3.75″ x 5.75″ deck includes 101 photo cards (as pictured above) and 2 instruction cards as a guide to using the deck, but we hope you’ll explore many other ways to enjoy them — the possibilities are endless.
Collect images from magazines, photos, or the internet, and cut them to the size of the card on which they will be affixed. Be careful to frame the image the way you want it, prior to cutting or folding. Then glue or tape the image to a blank card of any size. You may wish to add questions, words, a stamp, or an icon on the opposite side to brand your cards and allow them to be used in a variety of ways.
