Using prompts from People United’s Navigating With Kindness cards, artists, makers, charity workers, authors and many others from across multiple disciplines were invited to share their experience of finding kindness within the uncertainty of a global pandemic.
People United’s Navigating with Kindness anthology serves as a poignant time capsule, capturing the myriad ways in which kindness can manifest in the most challenging of times. Each commission offers a unique, first-hand experience of developing connections, both within local communities and the wider world.
Taken together, these thoughts on kindness in a time of crisis are both grounding and inspiring. They tell a story of creativity, compassion, connections and hope. Right now seems like the perfect time to revisit them, to pay attention to what we learned, and to keep believing in what we thought possible. Janice McGuinness, People United CEO
The Navigating with Kindness anthology compiles 15 reflections in the form of visual art, prose, poetry and video created in direct response to the COVID-19 crisis. Two years later in the face of an on-going pandemic, war in Europe and a cost of living crisis set to hit the most vulnerable in our society, the defiant and hopeful message of the Navigating with Kindness series is seemingly now more pertinent than ever.
