Care 7 days 7 stories

Care relationships surround us. Yet we don’t speak much of care. People in care relationships have a lot to deal with, each day. Time, space, energy, family and social pressure, work, finances, juggling the multiple awkwardly shaped objects of life and living, all this makes it difficult to sit down and tell you a long story.  So we requested 7 participants to share 7 short, micro stories, by image and a very few words, that can give us a glimpse into an aspect of their care experiences. This was an online awareness and visibility campaign, with one micro-story a day, from the 01st to the 07th of December 2015. Consider this a reaching out to invite you in.

People in care relationships may be caregivers, persons who receive care, use care services or have special needs because of the experience of disability. They do not have the support, services or the understanding they need, that comes from awareness and knowledge in the environment around them. This includes the environment of the family, immediate and extended, the environment at work, or the social environment of friendships, gatherings and recreation.

We sent a note on this campaign to our participants and you can read the basic note here.

We began on the 01st of December 2015, with a submission from one participant uploaded here, with 6 others in the 6 days following. We also created an event on Facebook here – Care 7 days 7 stories.
