A tool from youngCaritas South Tyrol (Italy)

What do you do?
In the Eye Contact Experiment people of all ages and backgrounds maintain eye contact with another person in absolute silence and for about one minute. With this non-verbal communication people may overcome their fear of the unknown and question a socially established indifference towards our fellow human beings. The action works perfect
as a smartmob.

What do you need?

  • a public place
  • people passing by joining the action
  • volunteers recruiting passers-by
  • signs with slogans (humanity wanted, share your eye contact, eye contact for solidarity…)
  • blankets to sit on the ground
  • 1 hour
