Film Festival 2006

Painting Peace

produced by Slater Jewell-Kemker

"What does Peace mean to You?"

At the beginning of 2006, a group of home-schoolers and the children of Canadian Peacekeeping Forces painted a PEACE MURAL for the ART-MILES-MURAL-PROJECT. The painting will join 12 miles of murals that will wrap around the pyramids in Egypt in 2010, the end of the United Nations Decade of Peace. This short film talks with these child painters about their ideas of Peace.

To me peace means love

What peace means to me is helping people There should be no violence in the world and we should talk it over with words For me peace means contentment I love my friends and my family, that’s why I think it’s peace You can keep peace in places that don’t have peace by being nice to each other Peace is : I like to be happy It means birds singing!!! Peace for me is a clean environment, trees, and people just being friendly to each other.
