Two Awesome 12 Day Ridvan Celebrations Online!

We’ve seen a diverse flourishing of online Baha’i-inspired initiatives in recent days and weeks as more and more people self-isolate due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. As Baha’is and their friends around the world celebrate the 12 days of Ridvan in creative ways that are in keeping with the recommendations of health authorities, we’re especially excited to share two awesome initiatives which are taking place each of the 12 days of Ridvan to celebrate the whole Festival online. 

1. Ridvan is Everywhere!

The “Is Everywhere” Collective, which brought us this wonderful online Naw-Ruz celebration, is back to celebrate the Festival of Ridvan! They are excited to provide family-friendly programming for all 12 days of Ridvan. Special programs sponsored by the Local Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of Los Angeles (USA) will be offered on the 1st, 9th and 12th days of Ridvan but every day in between will also include poetry, storytelling, music, art, dancing, cooking, and crafting—all submitted by friends from across the world!

You’ll find the playlist for Ridvan Is Everywhere here on YouTube. You can also subscribe to their YouTube channel for updates.

 

2. A Global Ridvan Celebration

The team at the Baha’i Knowledge Network is also sharing special programs for each day of the Festival of Ridvan. Short presentations will be provided daily with special extended programming on the 1st, 9th and 12th days of Ridvan. You can watch the events live, or anytime afterwards. Join friends from around the world and enjoy music, arts, crafts and even refreshments together!

You can find out more by visiting their website. You can also stay updated by following their Facebook page.

  1. Such a lovely idea to have a global celebration like this to bring us all closer. Maybe we should still have these after the pandemic and keep building such beautiful collaborations born out of crisis.

  2. Ja, ich finde es auch ganz wunderbar was hier gemacht wird; gratuliere den Baha’i ganz herzlich. Das ist in dieser schweren Zeit eine sehr schöne Angelegenheit und macht bestimmt vielen Menschen große Freude. Ich danke von ganzem Herzen der ganzen Baha’i-Welt und wünsche sehr viel Erfolg und Freude
