Acts of Transformation: From War Toys to Peace Art

In June 2006, the World Peace Forum and the International Peace Education Conference took place in Vancouver. In response to these important events, MOA partnered with the BC Teachers Federation to present an exhibit dedicated to the ideals of peace. The exhibit features toys of violence transformed into objects of art by BC students, teachers, artists, and activists. The exhibit celebrates the six principles of UNESCO?s Manifesto 2000: the need to respect all life, reject violence, share with others, listen to understand, preserve the planet, and rediscover solidarity.
