INNATE has a set of A4 size mini-posters or information sheets available for free download and home printing; a colour printer is required (though some may look satisfactory in black and white). They are intended for use on notice boards and in personal spaces. They are aimed primarily at NGOs (non-governmental organisations, civil society groups), schools and colleges, and home use.
Each poster or information sheet, listed below, has word tags to indicate its content. The first one or two tags tend to indicate the overall subject and subsequent ones aspects of the detail.
The major categories covered (listed alphabetically) include Children and violence, Dealing with the past, Gender issues, Green issues (including climate change), Human rights, Irish historical, Militarism (including war and armaments), Nonviolence , Northern Ireland, Nuclear power, Peace, Power, Religion. We welcome further suggestions to add to the series.
INNATE is a network concerned with nonviolence and peace so these are major themes in the poster series. It recognises that you cannot be peaceful in today's world without paying major attention to green/ecological and human rights or justice issues. INNATE's coverage and concern therefore includes these issues - as here in these posters. It would also argue strongly that a nonviolent approach maximises the chances of success and that this is relevant to green and human rights issues as well as campaigning on other issues.
All are poster-style mini-posters (A4 size) unless labelled as 'fact sheet' (i.e. detailed text). Quotations are also listed as 'quotes', where appropriate with the name of the person concerned.
For printing we would recommend the use of A4 matte photographic paper which can be bought in packs fairly cheaply though an adequate copy can be printed on good quality copier paper (the higher the quality paper, the better the print if you set your printer to best/photo quality). The use of cheap copier paper is likely to result in a very poor copy.
Given their size and the fact of home or office printing they are intended for inside use; to use outside you may need to laminate them or, for short term use, they can be placed in 'plastic pockets' (for loose leaf folders) and the end sealed. Some of the mini-posters are portrait orientation, some landscape; your printer may automatically choose to print the correct way but you may need to check the orientation before printing, and to select 'photo' or 'best photo' printing for quality.
Each poster is coded, alphabetically, at the end of the individual listing; this relates to the visual index where the posters are reduced in size so users can see a number at a time before downloading those of most interest. The download reference is included for each poster in bracket.
