Call for Storytellers around the world: Imagine...

Dear Storytellers,

Rudyard Kipling’s If video was just the beginning.
Well, here is the following step.
The 21st of September 2016 will be the International Day of Peace.
Working for that event, the name of the call is this: Imagine
Taking inspiration from the famous John Lennon’s song, I invite you to make a video telling what is your personal dream of peace in your own country, from your point of view.
The formula will be for everyone this: I imagine… and so on.
The final result will be a collective video of different hopes for a peaceful world, all together as a wonderful puzzle, each one important for the best of all.
As Martin Luther King Jr. said: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
So, peace, peace everywhere.
Send the clip in your first language (maximum 15 seconds, no sound and no rumors) with the English translation written in the message to this email.
Deadline: September 7, 2016.

Let’s make peace through stories!
