&IntoConnection is a movement that wants to build a brighter future through connecting people worldwide.
On the 21st of June 2009 &IntoConnection presents the outcome of a worldwide research into connection in the form of a book, in 14 main cities of the researched countries: Beijing, Berlin, Brussels, Buenos Aires, Istanbul, Jerusalem, Cape Town, London, Madrid, Moscow, New York, Paris, Tokyo, Utrecht. On this day 14,000 blue balls are spread around the world. With this event ‘intoconnection goes glo-ball’ they announced and shared their knowledge and connect with other people.
The roots of &intoconnection were planted 22 years ago when connector Salem Samhoud visited South Africa where he saw a huge billboard on the side of the road in Soweto. On the billboard there was a picture with all kinds of people, smiling and looking happy. Above their heads the words ‘Together we’ll build a brighter future’ were printed. A beautiful positive image. When he heard that underneath that same billboard 12 people were killed, Salem decided to put his energy in building that brighter future. On that day the idea of &intoconnection was born.
