Dear expats,

we wanna invite you to something special this time - if you are into (human) connection and new experiences, than you definitely should give it a try!
Let's come together - to find out what connects us, what we share with each other ... and last but not least... find out more about ourselves.
Warning: this might broaden your horizon.

(This is a smaller 'pre-event' for all those, who might not feel comfortable in public space - so we decided to set up a smaller indoor-event to let you gather some experience first... The main event will be later this year.)

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Let's share a minute's eye contact to rebuild our sense of shared humanity! This is part of The World’s Biggest Eye Contact Experiment →Protected content coordinated by The Liberators International in cities all over the world.

Your participation will help create a global video message for peace and human connection for years to come.

The idea is simple:

1. We will bring clear signs that say “Where has the human connection gone? Share 1 minute of eye contact to find out…”

2. All the participants (You!) sit down on their picnic rugs on their cushion, inviting a member of the public to sit down opposite them on the other cushion to share a moment of eye contact together.

3. We enjoy the afternoon together, then upload the video to the Liberators in Perth, Australia where they will edit all the global video footage to create an amazing video to be shared all over the world!

When & Where?
