World’s Biggest Eye Contact Experiment 2017

Eye Contact. like laughter, is a powerful and profound way to connect with people from all walks of life.

This is a Global Event hosted by The Liberators International. Halifax (was Huddersfield) has been added to the list of towns and cities hosting this amazing and exciting event this year.
So get the date in your diary!
Let’s share a minutes eye contact with strangers in public to rebuild our sense of shared humanity in Halifax!
This is part of The World’s Biggest Eye Contact Experiment 2017 (http://www.eyecontactexperiment.com/), coordinated by The Liberators International in cities all over the world and your participation will help create a global video message for peace and human connection on the 23rd of September 2017.

I hope you will join us on this special day.

The idea is simple
1. We will have clear signs that say “Where has the human connection gone? Share 1 minute of eye contact to find out…” (Watch the video pinned to the top of this page to see how it happened last year).
2. Then we sit down on picnic rugs with 2x cushions each and invite members of the public to come and share a moment of eye contact with you. Or, if it’s wet, as can sometimes be the case here in Halifax, we will stand or sit on chairs.
3. Allow yourself to be seen & calmly look into the eyes of the other person in front of you. When you create a safe environment of acceptance and love, the other will feel connected.
4. Officially Register

5. On the Day
We enjoy the afternoon together then upload the video to The Liberators in Perth, Australia where video editors from around the globe will compile the video footage to create an amazing video to be shared all over the world!

Where to meet?
We will meet on Thursday the 23rd of October at 11am at Woolshops Shopping Centre in central Halifax close to Car Phone Warehouse.

What to Bring?
Please come in smart casual clothing with a picnic rug and 2x cushions to be comfortable.
If you could make a sign “Where has the connection gone? Share 1 minute of eye contact to find out” that would be great! Look at some of the photos or footage of previous years to get an idea.

Optional Extras?
Instead of cushions you can bring 2x folding chairs, this makes it easier for the elderly to sit.
Instead of cushions you can bring 2x Hula Hoops, this is great for standing eye contact.
