We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again; we are so proud to be a part of a diverse, global community with you. Hailing from different cultures and backgrounds all across the world is one of our greatest strengths. Thank you so much for contributing your time, creativity, and kindness to the United Nations Covid-19 Creative Brief.

Today, we are humbled by each and every one of you.

You have selflessly answered the United Nations call to creators to do what you do best—create, inspire, and bring joy and everyone together through your creativity! 

We were overwhelmed by the collective response from around the world. (That’s over 16.5k responses, by the way!) Together, we have created a library of incredible artwork and important public health announcements that can be shared with all. 

Dawda Jobarteh, Global Head of SDG Strategy Hub of the United Nations has shared a few words of gratitude and motivation with you, in earnest thanks for all that you have contributed to this project.

On behalf of the United Nations, we would like to express our deep gratitude and appreciation for your submission to the Open Brief.

Simply put, we are humbled by your response. You selflessly answered the United Nations’ global call out to creators with what you do best: create, inspire, inform, and uplift just when it is needed most. We were overwhelmed by your thoughtful responses from around the world. Collectively, you have created a cross-cultural library of beautiful, compelling content which will help us flatten the curve.

Now we invite you to visit our UN Covid-19 Creative Content Hub where you can see some of the creative work and also share it on your channels, because stopping the spread of Covid-19 is what unites us all. If you do share work from our Creative Hub, feel free to tag @UN and @talenthouse using the hashtag #UNCovid19Brief and please always credit the creator. Our teams will be continuing to fill the Creative Hub as we vet content and will be adding new features, so please be sure to revisit the site to see new work.

We are also working hard to both distribute and disseminate some of your amazing work around the world to help stop the spread of Covid-19 by collaborating with media outlets, networks, brands and communities … so keep your eye out for work hitting the airwaves. And if you have significant ways to help get this content out far and wide, please email us at strategyhub@un.org

Looking ahead, the UN would love to stay connected with all of you. If you are interested in being part of this creative collective, please sign up here.  

Thank you again for leading the response through creative diversity and showing us that we are, truly, in this together as a global collective.

Stay safe, stay well and be kind, 
Dawda Jobarteh
Global Head of SDG Strategy Hub, United Nations


The results of this endeavor alongside you and our friends at Talenthouse and Ello and with our allies, the United Nations and the WHO, proves that together… We might really be able to impact meaningful change in the world. 

For the time being, we invite you to check out some of the amazing work you all produced on the United Nations Covid-19 Creative Brief Hub. Our friends at Bejamas also graciously donated their time and effort to create this landing site to display the best submissions to the brief to share with the rest of the world.

Stick around! We will be adding some fun updates and features in the near future.

Thank you again for always leading the way and showing us what we are capable of, every time we come together.

Stay Safe, Stay Creative!
