Ridvan celebrates Baha’u’llah’s time in the garden of Ridvan where He publicly declared His station as a Manifestation of God. The Ridvan Festival is 12 days long and is also the time of year where Baha’is elect their governing bodies.
Since sharing our plans for a new Baha’i Blog vision and direction, we’ve been working on expanding our network of Australian creators to share their artistic expressions of the Revelation of Baha’u’llah and its transformative powers. We want to inspire individuals around Australia to get interested, excited, and involved! We believe films and other arts and media have a role to play in doing just that. But, we can’t do it alone.
This is a new initiative to bring all kinds of creatives together, but especially filmmakers and social media content creators! The goal is for us to build a network of Baha’i-inspired creators to collaborate and share knowledge. We hope this content will be a resource for an Australian audience and that it will explore the transformative powers of Baha’u’llah’s Revelation at the grassroots all the way to the level of society.
Our intended audience is Australian Baha’is and like-minded friends and individuals. And our principle publishing platforms are going to be Instagram Reels and Tiktok (and in time our YouTube channel and here on the site too). We want to reach anyone who might be interested and excited to participate in the transformation of society that Baha’is are working to effect. Our aim is for viewers to be inspired to transform their own lives and their communities. In other words, we hope a person might watch, see, or listen to something on Baha’i Blog and from there be inspired to take action.
