Viborg launches a social media campaign #DrawwithDenmark

Thu, 01/21/2021 to Sat, 02/06/2021

Viborg (Denmark), a UNESCO Creative City of Media Arts, launched a global social media campaign #DrawwithDenmark. Dedicated to children and youth affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the campaign aims to share a message of hope and comfort to vulnerable children worldwide.

The social media campaign is part of “DANMARKS INDSAMLING (DI)” - THE UNITED DANISH APPEAL FOR FUNDS 2021” that aims to raise funds nationwide to support the affected children and youth.

Viborg being the host city for the above-mentioned National Appeal of this year, launched the campaign to further broaden the outreach of the initiative. Based on a partnership between the Viborg Municipality, the city’s Art School and Visual High School, the initiative also aims to raise awareness on the impact of the COVID-19 while improving access to and participation in cultural life, notably for marginalized children.

Children and youth from UNESCO Creative Cities worldwide are invited to draw and share a message of hope that renders support to the millions of affected children worldwide.

Over 400 drawings from 16 countries including from the Creative Cities of Busan (Republic of Korea), Dubai (United Arab Emirates), Essaouira (Morocco), Llíria (Spain), Potsdam (Germany) and Rome (Italy), amongst others, have been already received. All collected drawings are foreseen to be further disseminated via an online exhibition and a short film.

Interested participants can participate in this meaningful initiative by submitting their drawings of hope and solidarity until February 6, 2021 with the city.
