The Pledge to Peace promotes a universal culture of peace that has its roots in the individual and encompasses all aspects of life. This needs ideas and projects but, above all, inspiration. The world of art and culture can give a significant contribution to the vision of peace through creativity, expression and reflection.
Cultural organisations hosting events on the topic of peace
Cultural institutions like museums, academies, foundations, opera houses and concert halls can host events on the topic of peace, leveraging their prestige, outreach and audiences.
In 2015 the Main Concert Hall in Rome will host an event, organised by a pool of schools, featuring young artistic talents and famous performers, who will express their vision of peace through music, theatre, dance, poetry and readings.
Cultural organisations can create and promote artistic and cultural events revolving around the topic of peace. These may include performances, exhibitions, contests. Possible expressions can involve music and dance, poetry and readings, art and photo exhibitions, video making, etc.
Organising forums on the topic of peace
Members of the knowledge society (Academies, Study centres, Publishing houses, etc.) can organise forums and events, gathering influencers and promoting a true reflection on the topics of peace and well-being.
