Making Peace is a major public (indoor/outdoor) event that aims to teach the public, especially young people what key elements are necessary to create a 'sustainable peace'; providing an opportunity for people of all ages to get involved in bringing about positive change. Activities include a large outdoor photographic exhibition curated by Ashley Woods (formerly with Magnum Photos) that pays tribute to the people who — all over the planet — devote their time, energy and resources to the cause of peace.
Making Peace was first produced to mark the centenary of the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to the International Peace Bureau (IPB) in 1910.
Making Peace is an impressive and wonderful way of raising awareness for the complexity of lasting peace in fragile environments. I do think it is a valuable effort to engage people all over the world in activities that help us live more peaceful than we do.
— Robbert Bodegraven, Head of Advocacy, Campaigning and Communication at War Child
