Diversity Contest 2018: Through Another’s Eyes

For this year’s Diversity Contest, your challenge is to engage in an experience that represents a different view than your own and then express that experience through writing, art or performance.

How? Here are few ideas, but do not feel limited to these suggestions. Please keep in mind that under no circumstances should you do anything that compromises your safety.

Under no circumstances should you try to change someone else’s views, and you are not at all being asked to change your views. Rather, just take a moment to thoughtfully immerse yourself in a different viewpoint or experience than your own.

For your entry, consider your experience of stepping outside your comfort zone and seeing the world through someone else’s perspective. Consider the following questions as you create your entry.

The overall purpose is to help you see a broader spectrum of the human experience.

Contest details

Apply to enter the contest by March 1. Entries will be due March 12. Applications and entries will be submitted via Momentum.
