The Nie iGRAj z zyciem deck consists of 48 cards that stimulate conversations about life and death. The project aimed at creating cards based on a traditional deck, in which symbols and characters serve as a starting point for conversation about social problems. The cards can be used during workshops with teenagers, in psychotherapy or as part of the classic card games. All the drawings are handmade and refer to the noir style. Four basic colors symbolize particular problems or issues. Club stands for a bottle/alcoholic beverage, diamond for money/gambling, heart for eating disorders/bread roll, and spade for drugs (medications)/syringe.
