Amazing!

Dear Monika.

My deepest apologies also to you. Unfortunately, sometimes it is really hard to stay on track. Waw, you are doing an amazing and important work! I would love to talk more about it. Regarding the project that I wrote - currently we have a national small contest and the picture I posted it is from a girl with severe AD. As I explained to Mr. Ryan, with the picture she also explained why she used the black and white (she wants to be invisible), newspaper (uncounted word regarding her looks she was said to), why the red hat (blood, pain, itch), why the blue eyes (hope - perhaps she would someday be without suffering) ... she explained that she only feels free when she paints. And this is how I felt when I draw, for some reason (maybe I can tell you in person) I stopped completely. But I know how important it is, how it makes you feel a live and how comforting it feels. From every artwork we get we would do an art book. But this would be an open idea - no limitation :).
Regarding the video, it would be an art video - an artist would try to show the severity of bulling and the effect it has. It would not be longer that 1-2 minute, because science show that this is the amount of minutes our brain stay focus. This video would be national and international – it would go viral. Hopefully I answered your question. But I would love to stay in contact and perhaps we can do something together. Kind regard, Tina

Dear Ryan,
first of all my deepest apology for my late reply. So my first idea was based on my already existing national art contest. The picture I posted it is from a girl with severe AD. With the picture she explained why she used the black and white (she wants to be invisible), newspaper (uncounted word regarding her looks she was said to), why the red hat (blood, pain, itch), why the blue eyes (hope- perhaps she would someday be without suffering) ... she explained that she only feels free when she paints. And she does an amazing job! She also explained that she just lost her job due to AD. We also got poems written to AD and amazing children paintings. It would be an open idea - no limitation :) ... We would have 3 categories children, teenagers and adults (who also suffer form bullies) ... in every chategory 3 - 5 prizes. It is very hard for AD patients to be filmed, so this kind of art gives you the comfort and absolute safety. From everything we get we would do an art book. Regarding the video, it would be an art video - an artist would try to show the severity of bulling and the effect it has. It would not be longer that 1-2 minute, because science show that this is the amount of minutes our brain stay focus. This video would be national and international – it would go viral. Hopefully I answered your question. Best wishes, Tina
