VISUAL STORYTELLING CONTEST (Karuna Stories)

KARUNA STORIES
The Power of Gentleness and Grace

ABOUT KARUNA STORIES (A Visual Storytelling Contest)

  • Solidarity, Compassion, Care in the Age of Social Distancing
  • The Covid-19 pandemic has been reshaping how we think, act, live, work, interact, share, socialize, travel, and stay healthy.
  • We invite you to share your hopes, visions and possibilities for a post-Covid world through short illustrated stories that imagine a future where people can PARTICIPATE in a changing society without feeling out-of-place, intimidated or overwhelmed.
  • IMAGINE new social realities with liberty, equality, dignity, and empathy for all.
  • NURTURE critical thinking to prevent us from walking into a dystopian future where we are duped into reactionary or reductive choices.
  • CREATE a safe, sensitive, robust world where health and economy can meet the unforeseen with grace and collective wisdom.
