Face Up to Peace

Fall 2002, Parkerville Retreat Center, Perth, Western Australia



This project was part of a larger effort to raise awareness for international Departments and Ministries of Peace. Participants first discussed what the word “peace” meant to them. Then they made masks of their faces and painted them to represent their visions of peace.


Project contributers: Spiral Charm, Kitsiri DeSilva, Gabrielle & Jackson & Paul & Yvonna Hanna, Anne-Marie & Maddie Hoyne, Frauke Jauch, Louise, Vahri McKenzi, Parkerville Retreat, Georgie & Hannah Stone, Bill Tayor.
