Action for Peace #84

What happened?

The Peace Box event was a series of different workshops that gathered a total of 32 participants from 11 countries, and engaged them in creative practices that explored and promoted positive and meaningful messages of peace. The event included the following:

Throughout the activities participants explored different perspectives of peace, its meaning and its value, and shared and listened to personal stories of participants from a variety of backgrounds and countries.

Peace-focused photographic images were provided as visual stimuli to each activity. The Peaceful(l) virtual photography exhibition published 19 photos, created by participants, on the PeaceBox website. It provides an insight into moments of peace and the absence of peace in everyday life.

The Forest short film was created in collaboration with participants who were involved in the production and conception of the film, and portrays the message “For some forests host peace and positive emotions. For others it is a shelter from war and death. It shouldn’t be that way!”
