Most of you who read my blog are also my friends on facebook, which means you’ve already gotten my group and event invites for World Wide Moment. I really believe in this project, so please take a minute to read the website exerpt below:
“World Wide Moment is a photography project which aims to let people around the world participate in a simultaneous moment of peace. The concept is for people to take photographs simultaneously in celebration of this event. Whether they are comfortable at home, hard at work, or in the middle of fighting for a cause they believe in, Worldwidemoment wants everyone to participate by taking a photograph at 08.08.8@08:08+08GMT. This time corresponds to August 8th, 2008 at 8:08AM in Beijing China (coincidentally Worldwidemoment occurs the morning of the first day of the Summer Olympics, but is not affiliated with the Olympics), this is the same moment as August 8th 2008 at 1:08AM in London, August 7th, 2008 at 8:08PM in New York, and so on around the world.
“The ultimate goal for World Wide Moment is two parts. 1) To prove that peace is possible around the world, even for one moment. 2) To display and expose everyone’s images and stories from the moment in galleries and online displays in order to create an international discussion, community, and hopefully initiate a positive change through the art of photography.”
We would love to have you participate in WWM with us. If you’re interested, you can find more info on the website: www.worldwidemoment.org. I can also answer any questions you might have. Thanks!
