Kotahitanga manaaki te kawa- World Peace Day 2015 – Forsyth Barr Stadium, 20th September.

Peacing Together will present Kotahitanga Manaaki Te Kawa - World Peace Day 2015. Peacing Together is a not for profit group that formed in March 2015, consisting of Artists, Event Creators, Community Facilitators and students from the National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies. This event will be the first of its kind and a wonderful opportunity for everyone to come together celebrating our unity within diversity in Dunedin.

Our kaupapa for this event is Celebrating Peace through Multicultural Diversity. Throughout the day there will be food stalls, a Womad inspired program of live music, dance, children’s activities, great coffee, visual art, poetry, speakers, workshops, and stalls for all. There is plenty of opportunity for everyone to come and make this a memorable community experience.

The United Nations' (UN) International Day of Peace is celebrated on September 21st each year to recognize the efforts of those who have worked hard to end conflict and promote peace around the world. The International Day of Peace is a day of ceasefire and we will acknowledge this day by inviting David Ellison, the Chief (Upoko) of Karitane, Puketeraki and Koumatua of Peacing Together to welcome the people on the day. A DCC representative will join in opening World Peace Day 2015 for Dunedin City.

For many of us peace can seem an unrealistic possibility. Coming together to celebrate music and arts for a community event with a common harmonious mind can help us appreciate the diversity within our community. It is another step towards remembering our common humanity and learning to respect and enjoy our natural diversity.

Peacing Together would like to thank all the community groups and organizations who have supported us thus far and invite any others who would like to support this kaupapa to contact us about their participation. We invite you to “come and join us and participate and create a place to share music, dance, laughter, culture, knowledge, inspiration, and passion.”

Sunday the 20th of September at the Forsyth Barr Stadium from 11 am until 8 pm.
