H2O for Peace – iPhoneography for Human Rights

The 22nd of March 2017: the date indicated by the UNO to celebrate World Water Day is precisely when the Fondazione Campana dei Caduti, [Bell of Peace Foundation for Fallen Soldiers] will launch its sensitizing campaign in favour of Water as an Instrument of Peace and Harmony among peoples. The initiative, called H2O for Peace – iPhoneography for Human Rights, features an international photographic competition in collaboration with the NEM – the New Era Museum (a Virtual Museum and International Artistic Movement) which has made specific images captured and revisited by smartphones its philosophy.

The competition ends at the beginning of June with the selection of the finalists and the proclamation of the winner. The works chosen will be screened at the Fondazione Campana dei Caduti, Rovereto and included in a video clip with music by Marco Testoni performed by the Pollock Art-Jazz Project. Along with the photographs selected, visitors may view the video at the Foundation, on the social networks and the web, as well as during international events aimed at highlighting the results obtained and the emotions aroused by the competitors’ works.

H2O for Peace – iPhoneography for Human Rights invites a wide audience of social- networkers to ponder on a highly significant conceptual idea whereby, also according to the UNO, water is life, the sap of human existence. Water is the human Right closest to Life. Sharing the supply of this vital lymph can be assured by dialogue between peoples, the circulation of resources. In brief, peace.

This sensitising campaign has chosen the art which more than any other spells sharing: iPhoneography, that is, a widespread, democratic art which permits people to create images using their smartphones and share them on the internet and the social networks. The enormous potential of this art make it the ideal creative medium for providing the whole world with a means of speaking about an important topic like water. This art, born on the social web, is now examined and studied in for its intrinsic worth and its strongly democratic nature also within traditional photographic environments.

The president of the jury will be Andrea Bigiarini, originator and founder of the Nem. The works will also be adjudicated by: Marco Di Battista, Giancarlo Beltrame, Dilshad Corleone, Davide Capponi.

World Toilet Day

Today is the World Toilet Day. It could sound strange, even funny for some of the rich western people. Actually Sanitation is a global development priority. From 2013 Onu dedicated 19th November to this very important problem. UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, said Sustainable development goal 6 calls on the international community to ensure access to toilets by 2030. Delivering on this basic human right — the right to water and sanitation — is good for people, business and the economy. I don’t need to write more: you can find more infomations on web links above.
