The Beauty in Differences / Meraikan Perbezaan / 美妙的差异

We live in a world where being different from the rest can be daunting. However, these differences can sometimes lead to beautiful reactions. Instead of shying away from differences, we should embrace and celebrate diversity. Express in art what you think is beautiful about being different! Illustrate how accepting diversity makes life more vibrant and leads us to growth and propel us forward?

You are free to express your idea in a reality or fantasy setting, not limited to human characters. Should you feature any characters in your artwork, we would encourage for it to be original.

Keperluan untuk menghadapi perbezaan dalam pelbagai aspek kehidupan sering menyebabkan keresahan dan kebinggungan. Namun, kadangkala perbezaan itu juga boleh memberi kesan yang indah dalam nilai kehidupan kita. Kita seharusnya menerima kelainan setiap individu. Bagaimanakah kepelbagaian dalam identiti atau sosiobudaya boleh menjadikan hidup kita lebih bermakna dan menarik serta merangsangkan pembangunan peribadi? Lukis dan gambarkan apa yang anda faham tentang perbezaan sebagai kelebihan dan keistimewaannya!

Peserta adalah bebas untuk mempersembahkan idea dalam latar realiti atau fantasi dan tidak wajib untuk melukis watak manusia dalam karya anda. Sekiranya anda ingin melukiskan sebarang watak, kami menggalakkan reka bentuk watak tersebut adalah ciptaan asli anda sendiri.

在我们的生活里,“异于常态” 往往会被视为另类、奇怪,甚至被否定和拒绝。虽然各种的差异也许会令人生畏,但有时这些‘不同’的碰撞也会产生美好。与其排斥它,不如欣然接受差异给我们带来的多元化!以你丰富的想象力,用美术表达出您对于“差异”的了解和它的美妙之处!环境、社会、文化的多样性如何让生活添加乐趣, 激发彼此的成长?
