Peace Days was inspired by Rotary World Peace Partners in 2010. Peace Days grew out of a desire to celebrate the United Nations’ International Day of Peace, designated as September 21steach year.
In 2010, Winnipeg celebrated with a Concert for Peace, where music was the medium to communicate the importance of working toward a more peaceful and compassionate society.
Peace Days evolved, and in 2015 became a two week-long festival with community events spanning from September 11 through to the International Day of Peace on September 21.
This year, from September 11-25, 2016, Peace Days will include a diverse, stimulating program of events throughout Winnipeg to appeal to all ages.
Ma Mawi is excited to announce that we will be hosted 3 youth-led events during this festival. Each event will highlight various Indigenous views and teachings with the intention to create understanding and mutual respect, peace and compassion. These events are open to anyone with interest and are free of charge.
