From 7 March until 23 March 2008 Waitangi Park is the site of what sounds like an interesting photo exhibition:
Waitangi Park will, from this Friday 7 March, house a new photography exhibition, Winds of Change – 1000 Women for Peace, celebrating women from all over the world who have worked towards peace.
Nicci Simmonds, one of the co-ordinators of the Nobel project, says women from more than 150 countries … feature in the exhibition.
… “This exhibition is an inspiring and moving reminder of how peace can be brought about, day by day, and that while it’s up to each individual to act, it is collective action that brings the greatest change.”
Visitors to the exhibition will be able to navigate the thousand images through 10 thematic areas. Each area is arranged by colour to indicate the type of work the women did, be it Justice and Peace, Reconciliation and Reconstruction or Minorities and Indigenous Peoples.
