Pantone LLC and the Academy of Art University announced the winners of Color in Action, a unique project designed to explore the positive influence of color on social change.
The judges selected Team Bullying as the winner of the Color in Action project. Team Bullying posed the question, “How Does Color Affect a Developing Brain and Can We Use it to Lower Aggression and Teach Tolerance?”
Studies have shown that one’s physical environment directly impacts behavior, and certain colors are linked to increases in brain development, visual processing and lowered stress. With today’s alarming rates of bullying-related violence and suicides, Team Bullying set out to see if color could be a force for positive change.
The team’s goal was to use color as a tool for enhancing the school environment, building community and embracing diversity. For more information and to see the winning project, please go to http://colorcoalition.org/.
