A Day In The Life of The World: 11.11.11

On 11/11/11, humanity will be invited to participate in the largest collaborative storytelling event in human history. On this auspicious day, anyone in the world who has access to any recording device will be asked to capture their lives through film, photography, music, sound and text. It’s quintessentially “a day in the life of the world” told by the people of earth.

Post the date, participants will submit their creations to the 11Eleven Project team, who will then filter and curate the work and turn it into a few different projects, including a book series, world music collection and a documentary film. The narrative of the project will be guided by 11
key topics given to participants to inspire their creativity. These topics are:

  1. Faith
  2. Beginnings
  3. Heart Break
  4. Make a wish
  5. Darkness
  6. Love
  7. Beauty
  8. Routine
  9. Water
  10. Courage
  11. Play

The last component to be released will be the feature-length documentary film. It will be  screened on the 21 st  September 2012 – International Day of Peace. The film will be made available  to all people – for free – and will be shown in public spaces such as universities, urban screens,  town halls and community spaces.

All the profits raised from the project will go to supporting charities aligned with the United  Nations Millennium Development Goals – these charities include the World Wildlife Fund, The  Hunger Project, Save The Children, Global Voices, Hamlin Fistula and Opportunity International.  Currently the 11Eleven Project is available in multiple languages, with traction in over 150  countries and holds partnerships with more than 13 educational institutions. The entire project  is being run through volunteer passion, bringing people from all walks of life together, to unite  the world on 11/11/11.

A major objective of the project is to raise significant amounts of money and awareness for  some of the greatest problems currently facing humanity. These include hunger, environmental  sustainability, gender equality, poverty, education and maternal health. The 11Eleven Project is  an artistic venture that aims to explore our differences and recognise our similarities. Its  purpose is to bring individuals together, lift man made boundaries, shatter misconceptions  and open a universal narrative that brings about positive communication and pro‐active  engagement between all people.
