#Bedford Voices was commissioned by Bedford Creative Arts and funded by the Arts Council England and Bedfordshire Council. Dash N’ Dem initiated an open, collaborative process between political cartoonist Patrick Blower (known for his work with the Daily Telegraph, Evening Standard and the Guardian), advertising agency McGarryBowen and eight diverse community groups in Bedfordshire. Resulting in an alternative political campaign, billboard posters that went up around Bedford town centre for one month prior to the 2015 UK General election. These people’s political posters spoke back to those of the mainstream political parties, proclaiming the ideals of the community groups in the form of hard-hitting political cartoons.
