Peace through other means

From prayer to dance, to political activism, to the sharing of memories, to collective climate action, to re-humanisation: peace can be found, crafted, fought for and promoted in many different ways. This ‘room’ in our museum brings together a wide range of approaches to peace-finding and peace-building to celebrate the diversity of options we have available to us. Some involve mind work: meditation, or adjusting our thinking about in-groups and out-groups. Others are physical: channeling or communicating peace through our bodies. Some revolve around personal interactions: a cup of tea, or the exchange of grief, regret, stories. Others catalyse communities into collective action, so that everyone has a chance to play a part. Humans are a resourceful and creative species: there are as many ways to find and make peace as there are people in the world.
