Join The MY HERO Project (myhero.com) for a special performance of composer Kenji Williams’ Bella Gaia, a transformative, synaesthetic multi-media experience that critics from the Village Voice to Scientific American have called “sublime,” “stunning,” “mystical,” and “breathtaking.” Bella Gaia will literally change your perspective, blending music, technology, and NASA satellite imagery to create a poetic vision of Earth from space. American astronaut John Grunsfeld said “Bella Gaia transported me back into orbit, to feel the beauty and power of earth.”
As part of a night of making waves in global education, we will present The Sylvia Earle Ocean Award for this year’s winning short film. The award, established by the One World One Ocean Campaign, by MacGillivray Freeman Films, in honor of renowned oceanographer and conservationist Sylvia Earle, inspires filmmakers to shine a light on those working to protect the world’s delicate and life-giving oceans.
The evening will be hosted by Mohamed Sidibay, who will share his hero’s journey from former child soldier in Sierra Leone to international human rights activist. Mohamed, who has worked with UNICEF, UNESCO and Global Education Partners as an education advocate, will share his insights about working with The MY HERO Project in its mission to make a global impact in education.
Come early to meet the MY HERO mentors, who work with teachers, students and activists around the world to help them develop digital storytelling skills to share stories of their own heroes.
