About

Let's share a minute of eye contact with strangers in public to rebuild our sense of shared humanity in Oakland! This is part of 'The World’s Biggest Eye Contact Experiment 2017', (https://www.facebook.com/events/1351092208303666/) coordinated by 'The Liberators International' (https://www.facebook.com/theliberatorsinternational) 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.

Officially join the event here → http://bit.ly/OfficialEyeContact2017

��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.
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
�It’s important you register your participation for official event updates and behind the scenes info → http://bit.ly/OfficialEyeContact2017
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 Saturday the 23rd of September at 2pm at The Lake Merritt Pergola, 599 El Embarcadero, Oakland, CA

What to Bring?
�Please come in smart casual clothing with a picnic rug and 2x cushions to be comfortable.

��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.��
