‘Peace Day is an opportunity for UN agencies and NGOs to focus their ongoing life-saving activities within a global context. The impact of a day of global ceasefire and non-violence cannot be underestimated. Throughout the years, millions of people have been active on Peace Day in every country of the world, and hundreds of organisations have carried out life-saving activities in areas of conflict.’ http://peaceoneday.org/
POD Art is a concept, a digital platform for expressing emotions, by allowing users to generate and share unique visual or audio content.
Mobile devices are a key aspect in gathering content and sharing is a key part of the project, using social media as vehicle for inspiration and support. Work can be distributed to public spaces using large scale projections. Combine with live smartphone interaction to build and gage immediate reaction from large audiences.
The app aims to raise awareness of POD’s cause and ambitions. It prompts audiences to pause, think and reflect on issues which surround them, and emotionally affect them in times of crisis.
