Event DescriptionThe B4 Peace Project is honored to have received an invitation from the Tehran Peace Museum to kick off International Peace Day with the Bridge of Many Rainbows project on the 21st of September 2016. The purpose is to promote and create bridges of understanding between Iran and the USA. This project uses Art, Music and Word to engage the US & Iranian community, especially children, in a dialogue to build a bridge of peace.
CREATE A PEACE CONVERSATION
Bridge of Many Rainbows
We invite you to hold an event with adults and kids in your community. Create messages of peace with art, stories, poems, and videos and send it to us firstname.lastname@example.org and we will bring it with us to Iran for presentation. Or send your own dance, song poem, art, etc. Thank you for spreading your message of peace.
The project is being led by B4 Peace founders -the poet/ artist Namaya & Zoe Kopp. Namaya will present at the ceremonies on September 21st. Zoe and Namaya and other members of the B4 Peace team will conduct a peace art workshop with youth. The B4Peace Mobile Peace Art gallery will be installed and will include the One Hundred Flowers of Peace poem banners in dozens of languages including Farsi.
We are donating our time and travel expenses to the “Bridge of Many Rainbows” project. However, we are seeking $15,000 in funding to support the installation of the project at the Tehran Peace Museum and the continued dissemination of the message of peace from Iran to the US upon return.
