We recently had a visit from Raimund Menges and Klaudia Dietewich, who are leading a very significant Art and Peace project, with an exhibition, which is to come to Bristol in February 2020. It has travelled around America and various countries of Europe, with Hannover as the lead city in Germany.
Mayors for Peace was founded in 1982 by the Mayor of Hiroshima, Japan, and registered as a nongovernmental organization (NGO) in 1991. The member cities are dedicated to preventing the global proliferation of nuclear weapons by carrying out activities and campaigns, ultimately calling for their total elimination; as well as working together to develop safe, peaceful and resilient cities. There are now over 7800 member towns, cities and regions in 163 countries belonging to the network. http://www.mayorforpeace.org
Cities are not targets!
This is the Mayors for Peace core priority. Cities are the anchors, the guarantors of local culture and civilization. Whoever destroys cities destroys their culture, obliterating historical memory along with every trace of human experience.
