We all wear clothing made of textiles. Textiles are our second skin.  Manufacturing, processing and trade link us around the globe. The Global Skin wants to make this visible and thereby sensitize viewers for fair and sustainable action. With your videos, photos, sounds and texts, they will produce a feature film.

"People & Textiles".  How it works
Win one of the prizes totaling 30'000 US Dollars.  the Prizes

Participate in the video contest. (Now also prizes for photography, sound and text)

The Global Skin is produced by the Center for Storytelling in cooperation with the Dschoint Ventschr Film Production in Zurich and the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK).  

Topic of "the global skin" is "People & Textile".  We are collecting stories on this theme from all around the world, and the highlight will be a video contest. From the best results we will produce a patchwork film for the cinema. 

The project makes visible global connections and interdependencies by making use of the modern tools of communication in a worldwide, collaborative process.

We are looking for contributions of talents from as many regions and cultures as possible. Therefore it is necessary that many young creatives learn about the project and get the opportunity to participate and show their talent. Known members of the jury are the renowned video artist Pipilotti Rist, photographer Patrizio di Renzo, Swiss radio and TV personality Bernard Senn, and director Christian Frei (Oscar Nomination: "War Photographer").
