Whether it's through music, sports, dance or art, The International Day of Peace a/k/a Peace Day is about spreading peace your way. Whatever action you take to mark September 21, 2012 is up to you.
The nonprofit organization, Peace One Day, founded by the British documentary filmmaker and actor Jeremy Gilley, led a successful campaign to pass UN Resolution 55/282 recognizing September 21 as “Peace Day,” a day of global ceasefire and non-violence. 29 Pieces has a long relationship with Jeremy. In 2005, 29 Pieces Co-Founder Karen Blessen collaborated with Jeremy to create a children’s book titled “Peace One Day.”
Anyone anywhere can celebrate Peace Day. It can be as simple as lighting a candle at noon, or just sitting in silent meditation.
29 Pieces invites you to our “Make Peace, Make Art” open house on August 25
(124 N Peak, Dallas). Drop in any time between 10 am - 6 pm and make your masterpeace. Use our art supplies or bring your own. We will help you prepare your art entry for the upcoming Peace Project exhibit.
Peace Day is also a Day of Ceasefire – personal or political. Take this opportunity to make peace in your own relationships as well as impact the larger conflicts of our time. Imagine what a whole Day of Ceasefire would mean to humankind.
