World Peace Day is marked in Bristol by a free event that brings together music, talks, film, and big names such as Michael Eavis, Andy Sheppard and the Barefoot Doctor. Bristol Makes Peace takes place at City Hall on Saturday 21st September, 1–5pm.
U.N. World Peace Day is an annual day of action and reflection – but the decision by Westminster MPs not to rush into Syrian missile strikes has pushed Peace right up the agenda this year. In Bristol people have a chance to join an event that mixes the planetary with the personal, and asks them to formulate their own answer to the question What Does Peacefulness Mean To You?
Bristol Makes Peace is free, but booking is essential because the line-up is going to make this a very hot ticket! People can book a place and avoid disappointment by following this link to Eventbrite: https://http://tinyurl.com/pkg4p7n" target="_blank">http://tinyurl.com/pkg4p7n
Music is provided by the drums of Ilu Axe and the African Sambistas, by Celia Beeson’s gongs and the rare Swiss hang played by Ursula Monn. In addition Vicki Burke accompanies two of her own songs on harp. Speakers include Mayor George Ferguson, Glastonbury’s Michael Eavis, the Barefoot Doctor, and legendary saxophonist Andy Sheppard, who also plays.
There are information stands from 17 different voluntary organisations, and presentations from Building Bridges for Peace and from Our Stories, Healing Stories on the impact of war on children. And most importantly there are opportunities for you to respond to what you see and hear, and to reflect on What peacefulness means to you!
