This exhibition, sponsored by Mennonite Central Committee and curated by the Korean Art Forum, collects rarely seen works by American, Chinese, North and South Korean artists.
Responding to the speeches given by leaders of North and South Korea at an inter-Korean summit in 2018, this exhibition serves to communicate the following thesis: Peace is not an absence of war, but the living process of freely interacting with others and understanding their values and perspective, while realizing truth and justice.

Peace Week was initiated by Conrad Grebel University College and continues annually with a series of community events for the week surrounding the International Day of Peace on September 21. Plan an event or take part in one!
Every year, on September 21, the world celebrates the International Day of Peace.
Peace Week began when Conrad Grebel University College initiated a series of community events for the week surrounding the International Day of Peace. Since 2017, we have been opening up this initiative to Kitchener-Waterloo and beyond.
We invite you to continue to make Peace Week a region-wide celebration by attending an event in your community or planning your own event to mark the occasion your way!
Some 2018 Peace Week highlights include a STEAM for Peace event at Waterloo Public Library, a yoga class at Queen Street Yoga, and the Grand River Water Walk. Learn more.
The Op. 39 quintet by Prokofiev is based on his ballet, Trapeze, which was written during his time in Paris. The strange, virtuosic, and sometimes grotesque music perfectly represents circus performers and carnival sights.

Allene Chomyn, violin
Jody Davenport, viola
Ian Whitman, double bass
Jim Mason, oboe
Peter Shackleton, clarinet
Goplerud, Timothy (1960-) The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane
Milhaud, Darius (1892-1974) Suite Op. 157b III. Jeu
Haydn, Johann Michael (1737-1806) Divertimento in C major P.98
Prokofiev, Serge (1891-1953) Quintet in G minor, Op. 39
