Call for Storytellers around the world: International Day of Non-Violence 2017

Dear Storytellers, After Rudyard Kipling’s If , Imagine , Human Rights Day and World Storytelling Day , here we are to the new project. As many of you well know, on 15 June 2007 the United Nations decided to make 2 October as the International Day of Non-Violence , that is also Mahatma Gandhi ’s birthday, to celebrate this time in " an appropriate manner and disseminate the message of non-violence, including through education and public awareness ." I see storytelling as a wonderful and powerful way to do that, don’t you agree? So, I invite you to tell us how stories may spread and support non-violence in a short video (maximum 1 minute, no sound, no rumors and no subtitles, please) speaking in your first language, sending also the speech’s text with English translation to this email . Deadline : September 20, 2017 Let’s make peace through stories! Alessandro Ghebreigziabiher
