The event creator says
Let's share a minute's eye contact with strangers in public at the the bottom of the hill at Miller Outdoor Theatre. We will demonstrate that beyond our differences, there is love and humanity, here in Houston! This is part of The World's Biggest Eye Contact Experiment 2016! https://www.facebook.com/events/586373018209305/ coordinated by The Liberators International. https://www.facebook.com/theliberatorsinternational/ Last year we involved over 100,000 people from more than 150 cities around the world, and your participation will help create a global video message for peace and human connection for years to come.

The idea is simple:

1. We will have clear signs that say “Where has the human connection gone? Share 1 minute of eye contact to find out…” (Watch the video pinned to the top of this page to see how it happened last year).
2. Then we sit down on blankets/picnic rugs with 2x cushions each and invite members of the public to come and share a moment of eye contact with us.
3. Allow yourself to be seen & calmly look into the eyes of the other person in front of you. When you create a safe environment of acceptance and love, the other will feel connected.

5. On the Day
We enjoy the morning together then upload the video to The Liberators in Perth, Australia where video editors from around the globe will compile the video footage to create an amazing video to be shared all over the world!

What to Bring?
