Manifesto of Care

Kindness campaigner Bernadette Russell was commissioned to create the Manifesto of Care as part of Frequency Festival 2019. The Manifesto of Care has been made into a blog, podcast, and social artist Dan Thompson designed and created posters bearing the words of the manifesto. It’s a co-created, carefully constructed architecture of hope, declaring our plans and actions for building a better, more caring tomorrow.
