BE ONE HUMANITY CAMPAIGN BY B1-AKT

We are happy and excited to share that the International Campaign Be One Humanity will be launched this fall 2021, and will serve to finance and accompany collaborative projects from all over the world, in order to build “a better humanity”.

Aims & Concepts

1) The first aim: give a common positive story, narrative to Humanity, a common identity that allows individuals to be both revealed and transcended, and to feel that they belong to the same race:  humans. The campaign will underline the importance of an interconnected biosphere as « our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s future. And we are all mortal.” JFK 1963

People will represent specific communities, identities, ages, gender(s) but the portraits will underline the common “humanity”, creating unity against difference, hate & violence. The portraits will emphasize the richness of diversity, uniqueness, and unity. It will challenge stereotypes and raise awareness of racial stereotyping, and, in one case, will provoke members of the public into discussion about the pictures presented.

People & ambassadors will be asked to show their opposition to racism, xenophobia, far-right ideologies and stand in solidarity with those affected. The aim of the action is to get together, share a positive message of inclusion, diversity, equality and togetherness. #BeOneHumanity

The projects are financed, supported and managed within these places and spaces of social innovation. Each of the places of social innovation will be anchored in a local territory and connected to other places, internationally, as to promote exchange of good practices between international innovative ecosystems, create mobility and build intercultural bridges between peoples, communities, cultures.  #BuildHumanity

About the artist behind #beonehumanity visuals :

Artphoto LLG LOC visionary artist creates photo stories and video installations that challenge stereotypes and create diversity, involving himself and all types of people (from friends, neighbors to ordinary people). The Campaign represents a series of images inscribed with compelling truths about human diversity. Let us hear it from our artist Loc Llg :

“Images enrich or disrupt the story and experience of each. This accumulation forms a heritage of standards & marks which, attached to a culture and sometimes to a social status, we all share, shape, co-produce as to communicate and make ourselves understood.

But what happens when we admit as certainty and absolute truth these models, these stereotypes? Whatever the nature of our prejudices, are they not the fruit of our own representations of the unknown, the danger or the self-confidence?

And if we tried to grasp the Other one in its difference, to perceive uniqueness without trying to imitate him (her) or to submit him(her) to our own vision? Does not the originality make the individual? Let us rediscover our identity, reclaim our appearance, affirm our uniqueness and let us break these normative codes that only maintain the exclusion and the frustration…” LLG LOC

« Des images viennent enrichir ou perturber l’histoire et l’expérience de chacun. Cette accumulation forme un patrimoine de standards, de normes, de repères que tous, attachés à une culture et parfois à un statut social, partageons, façonnons, co-produisons pour communiquer et nous (faire) comprendre.
Mais que se passe-t-il lorsque nous admettons comme certitude et vérité absolue ces modèles,
ces stéréotypes ? Quelle que soit la nature de nos préjugés, ne sont-ils pas le fruit de nos propres représentations de l’inconnu, du danger ou de la confiance en soi ? Et si nous essayions d’appréhender l’Autre dans sa différence, sans chercher à l’imiter ou à le soumettre à notre propre vision.
L’originalité ne fait-elle pas l’individu ? Redécouvrons notre identité, réapproprions-nous notre apparence et brisons ces codes normatifs qui ne font qu’entretenir l’exclusion et la frustration. » LLG LOC
