The International Peace Bureau (Nobel Peace Laureate 1910) in partnership with the City of Cape Town and the Action Support Centre (ASC) is presenting the MAKING PEACE outdoor photo exhibition which is taking place from the 6th of November 2014 – 31st of January 2015.
Targeting the general public and especially young people, Making Peace essentially explains what key elements are necessary to create a ‘Sustainable Peace’, while paying tribute to the people who —all over the planet— devote their time, energy and resources to the cause of peace and how these persons and organizations have shaped and influenced the course of the 20th century. www.makingpeace.org
The exhibition was curated by Ashley Woods (formerly with Magnum Photos) and produced by the International Peace Bureau (IPB), the broadest peace federation in the world and a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate (1910). www.ipb.org
In the words of Mr Federico Mayor Zaragoza, President of the Foundation for a Culture of Peace and former Director-General of UNESCO:
“this is an extraordinarily powerful exhibition that pays tribute to a century of peace making and a wide range of peacemakers across the globe. At the same time it serves as a call to action for ordinary citizens to become involved in peace activities of all kinds, and in so doing to promote a global culture of peace”
