The Edmonton Peace Festival 2016
Sep 21 to Oct 02
The intent and purpose of the Edmonton Peace Festival is to bring together Edmontonians of all backgrounds to reflect on and celebrate peace. The Peace Festival aims to foster a city-wide promotion of peace, unity, and human rights. It runs from September 21st, the International Day of Peace, until October 2nd, the International Day of Non-Violence.
The Edmonton Peace Festival truly is a festival "by the people, for the people". It is our hope that the Peace Festival will contribute to the creation of a culture of peace in our city. We encourage all Edmontonians to join in the Peace Festival by developing ideas and actions for making our city a more inclusive and welcoming place for everyone.
The Festival provides an opportunity for energizing peace - it is an opportunity to think critically about what peace means at home and abroad; to connect Edmonton-based individuals and groups who are committed to advancing peace; to explore efforts to advance peace, both locally and globally; to work together in fostering inclusive communities to uphold the dignity of all; and to celebrate our common humanity.
