URI MENA
Art for Peace day to celebrate the World Interfaith Harmony Week- Feb. 2018
 
Dear all,
On the occasion of the World Interfaith Harmony Week, URI MENA Office organized "Art for Peace" workshop on Saturday 3 February 2018. 
Art provides a unique experience of healing and restoration, also it offers a valuable space for inner reflection and expression. We chose arts and peace as both are connected with creativity and spirituality. Art is a powerful mean to inspire a culture of peace and harmony. Muslims, Christians and Bahai's, of all ages worked together hand by hand to express their ideas of peace and interfaith harmony with paint and collage.  Most of them tried new techniques that get them out of a rut and into a more spontaneous way of working. 
Moreover, a group of Jordanian Bahia's arranged an art exhibition at the venue on the theme of how art can contribute to religious and social harmony.
