The EoF Contest: The stories we are

As part of The Economy of Francesco, we firmly believe that art can transcend borders, bridge communities, and shape a brighter future for all. This is why we have decided to call for a competition that appeals to all narrative and artistic forms.

We invite you to engage in a narrative exercise that fits into the perspective of re-building, of a new foundation of the spiritual and narrative capitals of our time. The topic is free and must be inspired by the challenges and hopes that we are currently facing. 

Let’s build new words!

We open the call to all art enthusiasts, economists, students, professionals, and anyone who believes in the potential and force of a new narrative, to participate in this contest which will be part of the Global Event. 

Your participation in this contest is a wonderful opportunity to make your voice heard and contribute to a global movement dedicated to positive change. By harnessing the transformative potential of sounds, silence, language, and expression, we can shape narratives that inspire!

Selected works will be presented during the Global Gathering and receive a symbolic EoF award.
