Week of Nonviolence – Garden of Peace
September 18 - September 26
Pace e Bene’s Campaign Nonviolence’s Action Week is September 18th to September 26th. This year, IJPC is taking action by creating a Garden of Peace. Art communicates nonviolence in a way that our words often cannot and has played a major role in resistance movements throughout history. This week, take some time to get creative and use your body and mind to help grow a nonviolent community.
To participate, please spend time creating a flower to join our garden. We encourage you to be creative and ask a friend or family member to join you in your flower creation. Some examples for flower creation include:
- downloading, printing and coloring a flower
- making a flower out of paper
- drawing or painting your own flower
- creating a flower decoration
- creating a flower out of things from nature
- pressing flowers
- taking a picture of your favorite flower
- and anything else that comes to your mind!
While creating your flower, contemplate what a world of nonviolence might look like. Include a word or phrase of what working towards peace and nonviolence means to you with your flower. You can incorporate the word/phrase into your flower design or send it in writing with your completed artwork.
Last, send your flower into IJPC via a photo or scan in an email to bekky@IJPCcincinnati.org or mail it to IJPC at 215 E. 14th Street, Cincinnati, OH, 45202.
We will showcase our garden of peace at the end of next week.
