    IS THE CALM

    F O R R E A L

    ?

  • IN SHINE, ROSA SUFFERS FROM A CONDITION CALLED THE CALM AND MUST HIDE AWAY IN A TOWER BECAUSE IN MIRASOL, PEOPLE LIKE HER ARE CONSIDERED MONSTERS.

    THIS IS NOT A GHOST STORY, THOUGH THERE ARE PLENTY OF GHOSTS IN IT. AND ITS NOT A HORROR STORY, THOUGH SOME PEOPLE WILL BE HORRIFIED. ITS NOT A MONSTER STORY EITHER, THOUGH THERE IS A MONSTER IN IT AND THAT MONSTER HAPPENS TO BE ME.

  • W H A T D O

    YOU THINK

    ? YES NO I S T H E C A L M F O R R E A L ?

  • DO YOU KNOW ANYBODY WITH A DISEASE LIKE THE CALM?

    HAVE YOU HEARD OF PEOPLE LIKE ROSA WHO LIVE ISOLATED LIVES BECAUSE THEY SUFFER FROM A

    MEDICAL CONDITION? DO YOU KNOW OF MEDICAL CONDITIONS

    THAT FRIGHTEN PEOPLE?

    SOME QUEST IONS TO HELP YOU MAKE UP YOUR MIND

  • IN THE MIDDLE AGES, LEPROSY INSPIRED LOATHING

    INSTEAD OF SYMPATHY. LEPERS

    WERE ISOLATED, FORCED TO CARRY

    CLAPPERS OR BELLS TO WARN

    PEOPLE THAT THEY WERE

    APPROACHING. IN ENGLAND,

    ANYONE WHO HARBOURED A LEPER

    WAS IMPRISONED AND LEPERS

    WERE PREVENTED FROM ENTERING

    THE GATES OF LONDON.

  • TODAY, MANY PEOPLE WHO SUFFER FROM MEDICAL CONDITIONS

    STILL EXPERIENCE STIGMA.

    CAN YOU THINK OF SOME EXAMPLES?

    WHY DO YOU THINK STIGMA

    HAPPENS?

  • H E R E A R E S O M E C A M P A I G N S D E A L I N G W I T H

    STIGMA

  • SKIN COLOUR, DISABILITY, AGE, RELIGION, MENTAL ILLNESS MANY SECTORS OF SOCIETY CAN FIND THEMSELVES JUDGED FOR THEIR OTHERNESS. THIS THEME SEEMS TO SURFACE IN ALL MY STORIES. I GUESS IT MUST BE BECAUSE OF MY OWN EXPERIENCE OF BEING A FOREIGNER BUILDING A LIFE IN A COUNTRY NOT MY OWN.

  • PLAN A CAMPAIGN TO END THE STIGMA OF THE CALM IN MIRASOL, USING VIDEO, SOCIAL MEDIA, POSTERS OR RADIO. HOW CAN YOU BEST PERSUADE THE PEOPLE OF MIRASOL THAT THEY HAVE NOTHING TO FEAR FROM THE CALM?
