Workshop of Peace
INTERNATIONAL PROJECT OF MAIL ART AND DIGITAL ART
“Peace is not a dream: it can become reality,
but you have to be able to dream If you want to keep it.” Nelson Mandela
The Department of Culture of the Municipality of Quiliano, in collaboration with the SACS (Spazio Arte Contemporanea Sperimentale) and the A. Aonzo Public Library, has organized for the 2018 edition a project of mail art with the theme “Workshop of Peace”, dedicated to the art postcard in order to return to the origins of mail art and allow maximum creative freedom and enhance the most brilliant and surprising aspects of mail art.
As usual, it was decided to add a section dedicated to digital images to mail art.
Someone certainly will object to the choice of this theme, defining it at least banal.
We believe instead that talking about peace is never too simple or banal, and that today more than ever there is a great need to talk about peace and tolerance.
The best weapon at our disposal is the spread of the culture of peace through every cultural medium in our possession.
The participation in this two-year project of mail art was very high and significant, like in the other editions.
The event was attended by 250 artists from 31 nations around the world, for a total of 289 artworks.
Saturday, September 15th, 6.00 p.m.
