September 2015 What happens when a seeker enters the dry world of diplomacy? The answer is a movement called ‘Humanicy in Diplomacy’, if the seeker is Ambassador Angelo Antonio Toriello. The Deputy Permanent Representative of the Permanent Mission of Sao Tomé & Principe (an African island nation) to the United Nations, Toriello started this unique movement in 2013 at the United Nations. “I call Humanicy the human side of diplomacy,” he says. Angelo Antonio Toriello: Making diplomats embrace their humanity “I am promoting Humanicy as a reminder to keep alive the humanity within, even though one is working as a diplomat. Humanicy seeks a developed role for arts and cultural exchange; in peace building and development negotiations. The Humanicy movement believes that arts and creativity can be powerful tools to bring about peace because they represent the truest will within all humans –that to communicate and cooperate.” According to Toreillo, Humanicy’s message will highlight the artistic consciousness in diplomats, shaping policy and civic engagement worldwide. Humanicy aims to combine art presentations with discussion on civilisational clashes, poverty, violence, intolerance, and explosion of youth in search of a better world. Toriello started this programme at the UN to reach out to diplomats stuck in an environment of rules and regulations that usually forces them to mitigate their human side. Before starting their day and also before taking heavy decisions, they are asked to dedicate five minutes to themselves.“One needs to be in touch with himself, through creative expression be it painting, martial arts, or photography. When you are creating something you become centred. You get connected to the Universe, the ultimate source of everything,” explains Toriello. As a UN ambassador, Toriello is collaborating in India with World Brotherhood Organisation, an NGO in Delhi.
