The project #imagoRevolution AIMS to neutralize the impulsive and collective pathos Aroused inevitably in each of us from All of the raw images made public by multiple media channels: TV, social networks, internet and magazines, online and print.
We all know That's the impact of an image is worth a thousand words and in this emotional overdose Which we recry to be bombarded and addicted to depictions rarely uplifting and joyful. A vacuous horror of violent That negative figures arouse imaginations global level, Allowing to spread with fear, resentment, frustration, helplessness, guilt and resignation.
STOP. RESET. What we try to do is to create a creative energy value, therefore, capable of generating a collective psychic phenomenon voluntarily oriented, called an eggregore: Renewed for self-feeding.
#imagoRevolution Proposes a way to discharge Their emotions, not to change its destiny - what is done unfortunately - but to change its final destination: from bad to good.
"The search for the good in the bad, will change over time evil into good. If the shape That is built to lessen evil is weak it will have no effect and will be destroyed by bad form, but if it is strong and frequently repeated , it will be effective to disintegrate the bad and replace it with good " (by Max Heindel, Cosmogony of the Rosicrucians )
#imagoRevolution offers a real re-war: see beautiful, good and the right, instead of silent resignation or meditated revenge
The con-vocation is open to artists: skilled to respond with consciousness, transforming the fact not the but that energy strikes it, by virtue of the utterance: " nothing is created, nothing is lost, everything is Transformed."
The transaction is immaterial, but no less real.
The collected works will be presented in an exhibition, Gathered in a publication and presented in the UN Cultural Department.Read More

Her Song aims to tell the Banchara story and accurately place caste-based prostitution within a larger historical context. In so doing, the film will catalyze healing, support and change for these marginalized groups who have endured generation upon generation of caste discrimination, extreme marginalization and the abuse of their rights as human beings.
Through the medium of documentary film we are working to bring truth and reconciliation to one of the deepest tragedies of the British colonial presence in India. Under the British Criminal Tribes Act of 1871, the Banchara were just one of many formerly nomadic tribes who were declared ‘born criminals’. The Banchara, along with other similar communities across South Asia practice caste-based prostitution in which girls are pushed into this work at very young ages and boys grow up dependent on the income of their sisters to feed their own children. Deep-rooted corruption across all sectors feeds the continuation of this caste ‘trade.’
The documentary displays an explicit example of caste discrimination, one of the worst human rights abuses effecting a population of over 270 million across South Asia and the world today. We aim for this film to serve as another great spark in this crucial conversation as the 270 million Dalit population continues to find support, strength and access to justice to rise above the centuries old hierarchical system of caste. The former criminal tribes have survived as non-citizens in India, even below the Dalit population in the caste hierarchy that continues to dominate.
The film will raise awareness about the intersectionality of caste discrimination, poverty and sex trafficking. Through on-ground alliances we aim to catalyze real, pragmatic, community-based solutions to ensure access to justice, healthcare, education and alternative work opportunities for the Banchara and other communities sharing a similar fate.Read More
