The “Making Peace” photographic exhibition will be opening in Cape Town in November. Here’s all the details.

In November, Making Peace will be making it’s way to Cape Town, centred around a large photographic exhibition at the National Library of South Africa.

Making Peace promotes awareness and the key elements of sustainable peace, especially amongst the youth, and pays tribute to the countless people who devote their lives to the cause of peace. The group exhibition forming part of the festival was curated by Ashley Woods, formerly from Magnum Photos, and is produced by the International Peace Bureau.

Mr. Federico Mayor Zaragoza, the President of the Foundation for a Culture of Peace and former Director-General of UNESCO stated: “This is an extraordinarily powerful exhibition that pays tribute to a century of peace making and a wide range of peacemakers across the globe. At the same time it serves as a call to action for ordinary citizens to become involved in peace activities of all kinds, and in so doing to promote a global culture of peace.”

Making Peace will open on Thursday 6 November 2014 at 10:45 at the National Library of South Africa, 5 Queen Victoria Street, Cape Town. The works were printed at Orms Print Room & Framing.

Here’s a look at the inauguration of the exhibition in Geneva in 2010:
