Middle East Peace Quilt is an international community art project made
by about 300 people from all over the world, who were asked to create a quilt
square answering the question "What is your vision of peace in the Middle
East?" Participants are men and women of all ages and backgrounds, ranging
from professional artists to people new to artistic expression. Where the
Quilt travels it promotes connections between Jewish and Arab communities,
and offeres information about the Middle East peace movement.
The Peace Quilt has been exhibited in churches, synagogues, community centres, civic buildings, private foundations, political organizations, summer camps, and fairs, as well as at university campuses, art galleries, and the National Archives of Canada.
I think of the Peace Quilt as a room full of people who will never meet
listening to each other’s stories.
