This September I am supporting international Peace Day and have been invited by Jude Law and Jake Chapman to participate in a fundraising auction which is now live on Paddle8.com
Jude and Jake have both been personally been actively involved in supporting Peace One Day for many years and witnessed firsthand the impact it has from Afghanistan to the Democratic Republic of Congo. Over the last four years, there has been a series of exhibitions in support of Peace Day at the ICA in London, working with leading artists, who have all helped to raise awareness of Peace Day.
In 2001, due to the efforts of the non-profit organisation Peace One Day, the member states of the United Nations unanimously adopted the first ever day of ceasefire and non-violence with a fixed calendar date, 21 September- now officially designated Peace Day. Thousands of organisations and millions of individuals are active on the day, helping to build peace within schools, communities, the workplace and areas of conflict, resulting in a significant reduction of violence.
