As part of the #MontrealFeminists campaign, we're privileged to collaborate with four talented Montreal illustrators. Maylee Keo, Carolina Espinosa, Maïa Faddoul and Daphnée BC have translated our feminist vision of the city into a series of colorful posters. Their works offer a refreshing perspective on the actions proposed in our platform of feminists demands for the right to the city to address the needs and realities of Montrealers in all their diversity.

This poster highlights diversity. The diversity of people and bodies who should be able to move around freely, but also the variety of transportation modes to which we need to pay attention for sustainable, inclusive and safe mobility for all.
Adequate housing for all
This poster is by Maylee Keo. She is a 2D illustrator and animator based in Montreal. Her work is colourful, playful and animated, not unlike herself. Her values are reflected in her work, and she doesn't hesitate to share her platform with those in need.
"This illustration represents the power of mutual aid between tenants and citizens. There's strength in numbers, and it stands out for its positive actions, working together to grow together."
Neighbourhood life for all
This poster is by Carolina Espinosa. Born in Montreal to Latin American parents, Carolina grew up with a pencil in her hand. Drawing has always been her passion. Today, she creates illustrations for magazines, advertising agencies and several organizations.
"As a woman and mother of two daughters, I believe it's essential that our living spaces are designed with accessibility in mind."
No more precarity, a city for all
This poster is by Maïa Fadoul. She is a Montreal-based illustrator and designer whose work is colourful, cheerful and often tinged with feminism. When she's not working on commercial projects, she takes pleasure in creating various illustrated products that reflect her illustrative style, all aiming to celebrate playfulness and put a smile on people's faces.
"As an illustrator, it's really important for me to work on projects that reflect my values. A city without precarity is an environment where everyone can flourish, pursue their aspirations and participate fully in society. "
