1000 Acts of Kindness by Adam Quang

Inspired by Agape, the love of humanity, 1000 Acts of Kindness is a global art installation project under the umbrella of the World Karma Project.

It uses 1000 paper cranes to help us make the world a better place one act of kindness at a time.

Come down and make a paper crane on which to write an act of kindness, record a pledge of kindness on video, then go out and perform this act within the next 48 hours.

The artwork has visited 14 locations and 12 different cities across Canada and the USA before arriving at Southbank Centre’s Festival of Love.

Write your message of kindness on Saturday from 11am until 6pm

Installation open from Saturday until Thursday, 10am until 11am

Agape – the love of humanity
The kind of love which makes us sorrowful when we hear of a crisis in another nation (or our own); that makes us give our time or money to charity; and makes us feel connected to people we don’t know simply on the basis of our shared experience as human beings.

FESTIVAL OF LOVE

Saturday 28 June 2014 – Sunday 31 August 2014

Over two months, Southbank Centre brings together hundreds of artists, communities and partners to create its Festival of Love. Our festival, which celebrates the Same Sex Couple Act, features an exciting programme of free events, differently- themed weekends, performances, poetry, talks and pop-ups. Our Thames-side site is also being transformed by several large-scale indoor and outdoor installations and artworks.

The Seven Kinds of Love
Festival of Love explores and celebrates the complexity of human relationships in all their forms. All of us hold feelings for others, but these feelings differ according to the people and the circumstance. In the English language there is only one word to describe all of them: LOVE.

It wasn’t always so. The Ancient Greeks had around 30 words to describe Love in all its shades and complexities. At Southbank Centre’s Festival of Love, we have chosen seven of the most powerful of these words to guide us towards a greater understanding of the emotion which makes the world go round.

These are:

Agape – the love of humanity
The kind of love which makes us sorrowful when we hear of a crisis in another nation (or our own); that makes us give our time or money to charity; and makes us feel connected to people we don’t know simply on the basis of our shared experience as human beings.

Storge – family love
The love a parent has for a child, or a child has for a favourite aunt or uncle. The love a foster parent feels for the children in her care and the love a grandparent feels for the child adopted by his son- and daughter-in-law.

Pragma – love which endures
The love between a married couple which develops over a long period of time. The love which endures in sickness and in health. The love which makes a friend care for their former school friend who has become vulnerable in later life.

Philautia – self-respect
The love we give to ourselves. This is not vanity, like narcissism, but our joy in being true to our own values. The strength to care for ourselves so that we can in turn care for others.

Philia – shared experience
The love we feel for people we strive with to achieve a shared goal – our co-workers, the players in a football or netball team, the soldiers in an army.

Ludus – flirting, playful affection
The feelings we have when we test out what it might be like to be in love with someone. The fluttering heart and feelings of euphoria; the slightly dangerous sensation.

Eros – romantic and erotic love
Based on sex and powerful magnetism. It’s the one which can get us into the most trouble. It can turn 
into other kinds of love – like pragma – but it starts as romance and attraction.
