An International Writing Competition organised by Sampad
– South Asian Arts Development
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world”
~ Mahatma Gandhi ~
Mahatma Gandhi is a towering figure in history whose philosophy of non-violence, passion for equality and independence and socio-political intelligence continues to be an inspiration for many leaders.
Sampad’s latest international writing competition provides an opportunity for aspiring writers to connect with this immensely philosophical and influential thinker and leader, and express their own response through inspired writing.
Key motivations for delivering this project:
- Stimulate research into Gandhi’s life and philosophy
- Motivate young and old to express themselves through creative writing
- Inform new and uninformed generations about this amazing personality
- Engage with wide audiences and participants across the globe as an on-line project
The publication which will be produced at the end of the competition will be a valuable educational tool and source of inspiration for young people in schools and colleges and beyond, helping to keep Gandhi’s message alive for future generations.
