WE WANT YOU to come and work with us for 10 days
The workshop will take place at Stanford University this December
With Ronny and Michal, co-founders of the Peace Factory and Joujou, the administrator of “Palestine loves Israel “page on Facebook.
Why are we doing it:
“PEACE: it’s VIRAL”
Peace starts from people, one person at a time. Today it’s easier than ever to connect and reach out to one another. We can talk, we can meet, and we can create new friendships without even leaving our homes, with the click of a button. One new person, one new connection. Peace is when we see each other as people.
War happens when people are afraid, and people are afraid of what they don’t know… so the solution is simple…let’s meet, let’s get to know one another… We will lead and our leaders will follow.
In the Middle East, the only connection we have with one another is what we see on the news…
In the Middle East there is always someone advertising for war.
We advertise for peace.
What are we doing:
We are making Peace VIRAL
By using the tools of mass media; we are making peace cool, simple, accessible, and possible.
Peace…it is all about the image, the perception we have of each other.
We need to create new images, to promote new stories, to show that peace is already in the process of happening. We need to make images that top Google searches and appear first on fb feeds. Images that can be seen on billboards, on buses in the street….
We invite you to come and be part of the Peace Factory, Brain storm with us, create new projects and be a part of the peace process.
It’s a not a “talk-about-peace” Lab…it’s a: ”let’s-work-on-projects-to-make-peace viral” Lab
