ART FOR PEACE AND INTERCULTURAL UNDERSTANDING TASK FORCE'S REPORT
by Elisa Campos
To establish a Culture of Peace System in such a diverse BPW world, so to increase and refine good human relations among BPW members. Peace is an action which is built from inside out, or discovering it from the outside and connecting it within.
How to define Peace is
It is first of all a spiritual action. It generates joy and creativity.
Peace comes through qualities and talents, so that it can be expressed outwards, through right human relations.
How to establish a Culture of Peace system in such a diverse BPW world?
To ponder on qualities and talents. To appreciate nature, focusing on the flowers. Qualities are like flowers that blossom through our attitudes and behaviour in our lives. To recognize them within us, and in other people. The beauty from within recognizes the beauty outwards, and so a peace bridging is built. As we recognize the beauty of a flower and enjoy it, as well as we offer to other people, as a symbol of appreciation of some kind.
To practise meditation.
To exercise creativity through art.
To create an art business with peace, art and beauty.
Workshops have been given to bring to BPW members this profound vision of peace and understanding, which really makes a difference, as we start to understand, and work within this new view.
