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.
This short series of videos was made to explore how the arts can be used to contribute to the betterment of the world. Baha’i artists from across the globe were invited to share their reflections on the role arts play in individual transformation, community building and strengthening the spiritual fabric of society. The videos were originally compiled for screening in Melbourne, Australia as part of the 2022 global conferences.
