Eye Contact Experiment 2019 - Event Information

What happens? On Saturday the 21st of September, 2019, on the International Day of Peace, we will share 1 minute eye contact with a stranger in the heart of our cities and towns worldwide. Your participation in the World's Biggest Eye Contact Experiment 2019 demonstrates the power of human connection in public. You will be representing your country on this incredible day and what happens will forever change the social fabric of the present and future. Why? Our global society has become thirsty for true connection and this experience allows you to be the change you wish to see in the world by creating an authentic, loving and respectful platform for human connection to flourish in public. When we feel connected to each other, we feel more peaceful, more open and less alone. Sharing one minute of eye contact enables all of this to flow without the need for even speaking the same language. Hashtag? If you post any photos or related updates online it's important you join the global wave by adding your hashtag. #share1minute, #Eyecontact, #yourcity (#paris for example).

Mirar a los demás a los ojos es la forma más humana de conectar con las personas y de paso aprender a verse a través de otros ojos.

This event is totally free. For the 5th year, many people worldwide have been giving their time during months to prepare and coordinate this global event. There are overhead costs like websites that need to be build, servers hired, mailing lists to be maintained, … Honestly, there are different reasons why The Liberators are taking a break and Buddha Theatre picked up the torch but one of them is an economical one. We want to make this event available to every single person on the planet so it is and will always be free. If you were able to appreciate the power of what true connection can do for you, how it can bring peace to the world and you wish The Liberators’s events to continue so that people after you can still enjoy the beauty of an authentic connection then leave a donation in accordance to your financial situation at the page of The Liberators below. All donations are 100% destined for The Liberators. We, as your local host, Buddha Theatre and its collaborators offer all contributions to the Liberators. Our dream is to have the whole world sit in peace. Your donation, small or big, brings us one step closer.
