#BeThePeaceWalk is a 100-day walking performance that invites everyone from all over the world to seed love and peace. It is a performance of remembrance and resilience from brutality and fatalities towards a more peaceful future.
The cast of this performance will include people, plants, animals, soil, stones, universe, emotions, sun, rain, clothes, times, memories, days, nights and everything else! It is a walk of Rwandan resilience and to educate the rest of the world.
You are more than welcome to join #BeThePeaceWalk, for minutes, hours, a day, week or for the entire #BeThePeaceWalk. We will be sharing stories, participating in activities of hope and resilience including planting fruit trees in gardens, visiting inspirational heroes who rescued Tutsi during genocide, listening to testimonies of survivors, testimonies of young generation who are doing great innovations… There will be days we will visit some families and spend their day life together by carrying out their everyday activities…
If you cannot make it to walk, you also can write a letter of seeding love and peace to be displayed and read during the walk and during the Ubumuntu Arts Festival. Your letter can be addressed to a group of people, to the world, to a specific person, to someone you want to forgive, someone you ask for forgiveness, someone you have lost, person(s) who have made difference to you, person(s) victims of conflicts /genocide or any violence, etc. As long as the letter aims to seed love and peace – please send to: firstname.lastname@example.org by the 20th of July 2019.
By participating #BeThePeaceWalk you are choosing to Be The Peace by committing yourself to seed love over hate, to speak hope to those in misery, and to speak life to those in hopelessness.
This is not a walk of sadness, rather of strength, resilience, peace, light and love. #BeThePeaceWalk is not a fundraising campaign; it is an invitation to seed goodness.
