June 18, 2023 will mark 40 years since 10 Baha’i women were hanged in Shiraz. Their only ‘crime’ was their refusal to renounce their beliefs in a faith that promotes the principles of gender equality, unity, justice, and truthfulness. This collection highlights Baha’i Blog content relating to the ongoing persecution of Baha’is in Iran.
Here in Australia, Baha’is and friends, are working to improve not just their communities, but the very society in which we live, through the principles set out in the Baha’i Faith. We believe that the arts and media can play a critical role in helping that come about, and that’s why Baha’i Blog exists.
Through sharing the amazing works of artists, interviewing creators, giving platform to thoughtful community builders and well-wishers of humanity, and exploring the spiritual journeys we’re all on, the Baha’i Blog project aims to contribute in its own way to the unfolding of Baha’u’llah’s vision for humanity.
We welcome contributions from around Australia, and beyond. We aim to showcase both work that explores the Baha’i Revelation, but as importantly, work that shows the transformative power of the Faith. We’re interested in stories and perspectives of people around Australia striving to put spiritual principles into action to transform their communities in ways both big and small.
