SupporTED: One Million Bones

Naomi Natale is a senior TED fellow. She is infectious, passionate and goes up against all odds. In the rushed reality of our daily routines, an art installation project against genocide may realistically feel “remote.” Nice idea but… who has time for such things? But watch the short video.

Naomi has a dream. And she cannot do it alone.

So, think of all these times you could not do things alone. How many times did someone help you to do something? How many times you felt good because you were not alone and someone held your hand, and showed you how, carried some of the weight off your shoulders and made you feel better because whatever it is you did was shared.

So, before taking off – just take a second and give her a hand -even by showing your moral support and spreading the word.

One Million Bones is a fundraising art installation designed to recognize the millions of victims and survivors who have been killed or displaced by ongoing genocides. It will represent victims and survivors of genocide, creating a visual demand for solutions to this issue. Ignored and therefore permitted, genocide continues today, while widespread awareness of it remains buried. One million people will each create one bone to represent one victim or survivor. Installed together, these million bones will flood the National Mall in Washington, D.C., unearthing the memory of these individuals while calling citizens to action.
