About 12seconds for Peace

'12seconds for Peace' is a collaborative video-arts project, designed to raise the energy of manifestation for peace on our planet and in our individual hearts and minds. When humanity manifests internal peace and recognises the natural order of the human condition, then peace in the world will follow. The proceeds from 12seconds for Peace will go to support and aid the various good causes of a number of charitable and non-profit organisations around the world.

12seconds for Peace Needs a Website!

Dear All,

In the year and a half that 12seconds for Peace has been running, it has grown inexorably from a little experiment in collaborative video arts, to sitting on the edge of becoming a global phenomenon within the peace movement, as well as a significant and globally important artistic statement.

Many have contributed their time to making videos for the project, others have offered their marketing and promotional advice for free. Magazines, podcasts, websites and radio stations have offered and undertaken interviews whilst film makers and production studios have offered advice and expertise on a number of fronts. 12seconds for Peace is continuing to grow as a consequence of the faith and commitment of many people.

But 12seconds for Peace needs to move on! It is time for it to leave behind this blog which has sustained it and been it's main window on the world for the past year and a half and move over to a professional website.

We are looking for someone who would be willing to donate their time to building a dedicated website for the project. If you have the skills and would like to help this project soar, then please do get in touch! 12seconds for Peace has no funding or expertise to draw on right now to make this happen. You can email to: 12seconds4peace@gmail.com
