A unique Indian story.
Told 7 ways, by 7 artists, and YOU
Saptan Stories was a creative collaboration between Aardman & British Council
aiming to inspire creative writing, thinking, and participation across India.
Thank you to everybody who took part in Saptan Stories to help us write a truly unique and beautiful story.
Over the seven weeks we’ve seen some incredible lines, each one offering its own unique twist on events, where all manner of beings from ‘willowy water creatures’ to a ‘flock of a thousand birds’, ‘charred pirate ships’ and ‘ethereal visions’, all came up for the vote.
Not to mention, our artists who have risen to the challenge to interpret each week’s line resulting in 49 stunning illustrations which we encourage you to enjoy on the artist pages.
Particular thanks go to our winners and runners-up over the 7 weeks:
