It is a pleasure to inform you that the Bahá’í World Centre has launched a social media project covering activities worldwide before, during, and after the bicentenary of the Birth of the Báb.

  • Images and media content from the last bicentenary have already been posted on Instagram and Facebook, and new content will be posted in due course. The Instagram account can be found at http://instagram.com/twinbirthdays and the Facebook account can be found at https://www.facebook.com/twinbirthdays/.
  • Communities may wish to be aware of these accounts, in addition to the official website (http://bicentenary.bahai.org) as yet another way to see glimpses of celebrations.
  • A collection of 86 images and videos related to the bicentenaries of the births of Bahá’u’lláh and the Báb has been added to the Baha’i Media Bank, as preparations for the highly anticipated, historic celebrations of the birth of the Báb gain momentum around the world. The new section, called Special Bicentenary Collection (https://
    media.bahai.org/bicentenary/), includes photographs related to the Shrines of the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh, aerial videos of the Shrine of the Báb and the terraces, bicentenary graphics in 9 languages, and images and videos offering glimpses of the October 2017 celebrations of the bicentenary of the birth of Bahá’u’lláh.
