The Earth Citizens Organization (ECO), a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to promoting the principles of mindfulness and peace in the world, will be hosting a “Human Banner” event for the Seattle community to come together in joy, peace and celebration. The Human Banner event will be held at 10am on Sunday, December 13, at Memorial Stadium in Seattle right next to the Seattle Center. During the event, people will join together to form a unique creation of art made entirely of people that spells the word “JOY” while wearing red and green colors for the holiday season. An aerial photograph will be taken. There will also be a guided heart-felt prayer for peace in the world, a time to reflect on recent happenings and to respond with love. To cap it off, we'll have some time to experience joy through dance at the end.
The event will also be a fundraiser to support our local activities around helping young people learn mindfulness principles and become leaders for peace and happiness in our community. We are asking for a $5 donation to participate.
A "human banner" is a unique creation of art made entirely of people. There is always some form of aerial photography or videography. It is a powerful, expressive way to bring communities together to make a statement, but it does so with elegance and creativity.
The event is open to anyone and registration is simple. You can register in advance or you can bring $5 on event day. In addition, any like-minded group, business and organization is invited to participate and can bring a sign to the event for a group photo opportunity at the end so we can show the diversity of the community and who all came together.
If you have any questions, please email the main coordinator at email@example.com.
