3 new Peace Vines involving Eryl Court, Cheshmak Farhoumand-Sims and Danielle David were released today.
So far a total of 13 Peace Vines are now out, floating the internet and hopefully providing thought about what peace is and what it means to anyone and everyone who encounter the definitions.
I has occurred to me that as varied as these Vines can be they are all striving for the same thing just in a different capacity. Understandably, there is only so much that can be said in a 6 second window. This is exactly the point. If you were to take the enormous category of
"peace" and cut it down to one breath what would it look like?
This is what these Vines are intended to do.
You may not agree with some of the definitions, you may agree with all of them or none. The perspective of this project is to create a space where you ask yourself about your definition of peace. Do you define your peace differently than Romeo Dallaire? Do you agree with Eryl Court? If you define it differently then why? How has your experiences shaped what peace to you means? How has it shaped what you feel world peace should look like? Is it done through diplomacy or something else? Is peace only the absence of war or is it something more specific like the ethical treatment of the disenfranchised members of society? Is it economic peace and if so what does it entail? Is it Democracy? Is it Socialism? Is it Communitarianism?
Our Peace Vines are intended to be the beginning of a greater discussion. This can only happen by viewing, sharing and talking about each of these definitions and finding how they fit into your perspective of peace and others understandings of peace.
