RECORD THE EARTH CHARTER IN YOUR OWN LANGUAGE
AND JOIN US IN CO-CREATING THE VOICING GAIA PLAY
“Dear global citiZen, you are invited to speak for and with the land on behalf of future generations of all human, animal, and plant beings. Let your mind be open, let your heart listen wisely, and let your body be ready for action.” – Voicing Gaia.
Voicing Gaia is a collective artwork and an invitation to engage and iterate a participatory vision of democracy where All voices (human and non) are heard and considered in global conversations to cultivate a shared responsibility for the future.
We are currently working on recording and rehearsing a global performance with creative collaborators worldwide.
The first act of our play starts with the multilingual reading of the Earth Charter. To make this, we (and GAIA) need your help!
The Earth Charter was translated into 65 languages, and we welcome and celebrate people who can translate and record reading in other of the 7,151 and more languages of the world! In particular, we are interested in native and endangered at-risk languages. We want to illuminate the importance of the cultural diversity of our world through the play.
You are invited to use whatever equipment you have. Even a phone in a quiet room/cave/closet/field could do the trick.
Before you read, we invite you to take time to centre yourself and take the time to breathe and pause between sentences.
It will help you in grounding your words and for us to edit all these beautiful voices together.
please upload messages and other media files bellow to be part of the artwork
