Youth Vision - Ekani Ekuga

March 7, 2021

With the COVID19 pandemic and the new normal, the future holds even less familiarity than we are accustomed. But there is no better time than now to pay close attention to the collective stories and personal narratives our youth are constructing. 

“Ekani Ekuga 2020”  is a culmination of artwork by 49 young participants of the Youth Vision Workshop 2020 organized by UNDP Maldives in collaboration with Ministry of Youth, Sports and Community Empowerment, The European Union and Ooredoo Maldives. Exploring intimate narratives from youth during a time of exceptional uncertainty, these artworks reflect on themes of loneliness, abuse, loss as well as societal pressures and a growing anxiety around the destruction of natural environment. These artworks are a testament to the hope this nation holds in its future. Afterall we are the stories we create.
