Culture Counts: UNESCO poster competition

Competition Details


by Patrick McKeever


This poster intends to illustrate the unique process of human dialogue.

Dialogue is one of our greatest assets as human beings. We can assign words to our thoughts which can then turn those thoughts into actions.

Naturally, our dialogue can sometimes become filtered and frenzied, which can be accredited to our abundance of cultures. It would be inhuman to sacrifice our diversity for our desire for immediate understanding. Diversity is what keeps communication kinetic and constant. It is the essence of evolution of thought.

A conversation requires cooperation and a willingness to pass the message along and add to its value. If we are on a quest for mutual understanding, we should embrace the fact that dialogue is hard, honest work and that clarity is serendipity.

If the core thought remains from conception to completion, no matter the filter, then we have achieved our goal. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how it occurs, but that it is heard.
