What is Despite?

The last few years our human resilience has been challenged in ways we have never experienced before. We needed to muster new endurance and innovate on a personal, communal, and global level. It is this spirit of human resilience, extended to its max, that we seek to celebrate with this new student competition. We call it “Despite”, the defiance of difficulties and the triumph in spite of challenges faced. Creators are invited to submit an original painting, drawing, photography or other flat creation that expresses the human spirit of “Despite”.
