Berlin Peace Wall Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
In Berlin Mitte (Grosse Hamburger Strasse 25), students, artists, and guests participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony marking the inauguration of the Berlin Peace Wall. The idea of creating the colorful mosaic wall came from New York-based CITYarts' Executive and Creative Director, Tsipi Ben-Haim, and was sponsored in part by the U.S. Embassy. The wall, including individually painted tiles featuring themes of peace, were created over the past three months by youth of various religious and ethnic backgrounds from 12 different schools from across Berlin. During the ceremony, students and honored guests placed the last tiles on the wall, which symbolizes the hope for a peaceful future. It is the fifth of its kind around the world." http://germany.usembassy.gov/events/archive/
CITYarts' 5th Global Mosaic Peace Wall
The CITYarts Peace Wall in Berlin—a symbol of the voices of our youth striving for cultural understanding and unity—is a permanent testament to peace in a space rich with historical and emotional significance. CITYarts' Global Peace Walls are part of CITYarts' Young Minds Build Bridges program, which engages youth from around the world in positive activity, allowing them to visually articulate their hopes for a future of peace—because Tsipi Ben-Haim, CITYarts Executive & Creative Director, believes that when kids create, they do not destroy. In a city once known for a division, the CITYarts Peace Wall in Berlin, the 5th global wall, will be a significant contribution to both memory and community. This wall connects 14 diverse schools in Berlin, celebrating the peaceful future that can be realized through the engagement of tomorrow's leaders, while adding to a site of remembrance and learning.
