African Connections for an afternoon of cinema for the conscientious at the
Dayton International Peace Museum.
 
Date: July 25, 2009
Time: 3:00-5:00 p.m.
Location: Dayton International Peace Museum (Peace Hall, behind main building)
208 W. Monument Ave. Dayton, Ohio 45402
 
 Film:

The Other Europe is a penetrating study of the economics and politics behind the immigration debate. The film provides a cross-section of the immigrant experience, in Spain, Germany, and England. It argues that the West is sending a contradictory message to immigrants: the economic system indicates there are plenty of jobs that will pay more than could ever be earned at home; but the political systems warn we don’t want you.

 

Format: After a brief introduction of the film, it will be viewed followed by dialogue

 

Thank You,

Max Ginsburg artwork

Gallery Opening Exhibition" Know Justice Know Peace " 
Sept 4th through Oct 12th

an Exhibition of Paintings by Max Ginsburg
Max Ginsburg

 His work is suffused with the energy of the city and it’s people: its vendors, its protestors, its athletes, and musicians. The power of his work stems from both his belief in the immediacy of a shared, realistic viewpoint and his strong belief in humanism. His work explores issues of class, race, and gender and in recent years has gone on to examine more subtle relationships within society, such as the way we care for our elderly, our young, and in the wake of 9/11, notions of patriotism.
*(from his bio.)


Artenade comes to Dayton (Artenade, Ohio Homepage)

Artenade is a Art Collective established in Iceland on a voluntary basis and managed by young professional and students of international background who share the same interest in humanitarianism. Artenade acts in a non-profit capacity with the largest part of their turnover generated from exhibition going to charitable causes and the Artists.

Narva Children’s Orphanage and the Dayton International Peace Museum.

Bosnia photo exhibit by Steve Horn 

Bosnia Revisited Fall 2008

Horn’s exhibit, a combination of photographs and text panels from his book of the same name, was developed with the support of the Religion, Conflict, and Peacebuilding Initiative at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. The exhibition and accompanying book grew out of retracing the route he took through that country in 1970. He was able to find places and people he had photographed 33 years earlier, now the survivors of a devastating war, rebuilding their lives and their country.

IMAGES OF PEACE
  
As part of the “Season for Nonviolence”, January 30 – April 4, 2006, the Peace Museum will display images of peace on four 12’ X 25’ billboards in the Dayton area. The billboards, which go up February 15th, will display messages of nonviolence from famous peace advocates Dr. Martin L. King Jr., Mother Teresa, Gandhi, and Albert Einstein. They will give citizens a moment to reflect on something other than the violent images they face every day, a different way of looking at the world.
  Locations where the “Images of Peace” can be viewed are Keowee & Third, Ludlow & 5th, Gettysburg & Cornell, Smithville north of SR35.
 
In conjunction with this effort, Key Ads has graciously agreed to donate billboard space for a student contest in the Dayton City Schools. Students will be asked to create an artwork/advertisement that promotes peace and/or nonviolence. The winning entry will be displayed on a city billboard for one month. Other entries will be shown in an exposition at the Peace Museum , at a date to be set.
