For this project we invited kits from all over the world, ages six (6) to twelve (12), to submit drawings about the pandemic – depicting what it means to them, how it is shaping their lives, and their view of its implications for the world.
Kids have a remarkable capacity to feel – to detect the subtle emotional content of what is going on around them. We want to enlist their expertise in our sensemaking efforts. In the process we are hoping to help kids express and share what they are feeling. We want them to know that they are being both heard and valued – something even more important in these difficult times than it is normally.
