10 Years + Counting


Sept 11 – Oct 7, 2011 will mark the ten year anniversary of our nation continuously at war.

10 Years + Counting invites artists and others to take this historic moment as inspiration and use
the power of creativity to illustrate the costs of war and imagine a more peaceful world.

Paint it, dance it, sculpt it, write it, sing it! Imagine peace and create connections. Concerts, public art projects, garden parties, bake-offs, gallery exhibitions, street art, flash mobs, walks and runs: the possibilities are endless.

  1. The 21st of September is the United Nations one day of peace. It is not advertised as much as it should be. Please pass this on.
