H2o for Peace
Pollock Project, Andrea Bigiarini & New Era Museum
The 22nd of March 2017: the date indicated by the ONU to celebrate World Water Day is precisely when the Fondazione Campana dei Caduti, [Bell of Peace Foundation for Fallen Soldiers] will launch its sensitizing campaign in favour of Water as an Instrument of Peace and Harmony among peoples. The initiative, called H2O for Peace – iPhoneography for Human Rights, features an international photographic competition in collaboration with the NEM – the New Era Museum (a Virtual Museum and International Artistic Movement) which has made specific images captured and revisited by smartphones its philosophy.
The competition ends at the beginning of June with the selection of the finalists and the proclamation of the winner. The works chosen will be screened at the Fondazione Campana dei Caduti, Rovereto and included in a video clip with music by Marco Testoni performed by the Pollock Art-Jazz Project. Along with the photographs selected, visitors may view the video at the Foundation, on the social networks and the web, as well as during international events aimed at highlighting the results obtained and the emotions aroused by the competitors’ works.
