The Care I Give

by Kara Manso [Comic]

Artist Statement

“The Care I Give” shows a similar experience to when I was a caregiver, using the image of mechanical suits to depict how we are treated like robots. “The Care I Give” is about the care caregivers want in return. In this comic, through community organizing, caregivers stand up for their rights and ask everyone to treat them with dignity and respect.


Kara Manso is a former caregiver, a community organizer at Caregivers Action Centre and multi-disciplinary artist. She centers her works around her lived experiences as a caregiver in the struggles to stay in Canada and fight for decent work and permanent immigration status.
