Concept

The International Kindness Festival is a global symposium on the Science, Politics, Ethics and Practicality of everyday kindness.

Through the inspiring stories of people’s journeys, we shed light on the various faces of kindness, brainstormed how to break stereotypes, and challenged the existing perceptions of kindness, philanthropy & charity.
