THE PEACE MOSAIC
Join Us with Your Pledge for Peace
International Peace Day will be highlighted through
the presentation and celebration of the Peace Mosaic.
We invite you to join us in creating The Peace Mosaic as part of International Forgiveness Week and the Weekend of Perfect Peace. Composed of innumerable “pledges for peace,” the Peace Mosaic will bring together contributors from around the world, from a myriad of nationalities, religious callings, race, political leanings, and economic backgrounds, all sharing a single purpose: the dedication to act upon and ‘pay forward’ a pledge for peace.
Your part of the Peace Mosaic is a representation of your individual pledge for peace, whatever it may be. The mosaic piece may also include a depiction of the experience that motivates your commitment to peace or an illustration of the results of that commitment. Pledges for peace can be as varied as personal silent moments of prayer, to vows to make amends, to pacts to take action for peace in personal or political scenarios of conflict. The Mosaic Piece itself can be an artful representation of the pledge or a text statement of the pledge.
To be included in the Peace Mosaic, your piece needs to be no more than ¼ inch (0.6 centimeters) thick. Please mark which end is up by writing “top” on the back of the piece.
Choose one of the following sizes for your mosaic piece and follow it exactly (click on description to print PDF template):
You do not need to be an artist to create a mosaic piece, and the way it looks is entirely up to you. Your mosaic piece can be made of any natural or synthetic material, such as paper, tin, wood, tile, or fabric, and you can use any kind of medium to create the image (paint, pencil, ink, crayons, clay, found objects, photos, collages, etc.)
You may submit as many mosaic pieces as you want. You can sign your pieces on the front or they can be anonymous. Mosaic pieces we receive will not be returned to you. We will also have art material available during International Forgiveness Week and the Weekend of Perfect Peace for attendees to create a mosaic piece.
Send your mosaic piece(s) to:
International Forgiveness Week
501 E. Adams Street,
Wisconsin Dells, WI 53965
Contact Nancy with any questions you might have.
