2019 Flagstaff Peace Day Celebration | Saturday, September 21, 2019
Music & Dance
The Sounds of Peace Initiative
PeaceOneDay.org has partnered with Musicians without Borders to create the Sounds of Peace initiative. The initiative aims to harness and utilize the highly significant power of music in enhancing community togetherness, tolerance, empathy, and peace by devising and re-distributing a community music workshop toolkit/lesson plan.
The highly experienced community music lead trainers at Musicians without Borders have created and developed content for this toolkit/lesson plan, and Peace One Day is proud to present this as an incredibly relevant and effective way of celebrating Peace Day, 21 September.
One Day One Dance
Who Will You Dance With?
If you’re a dancer, a dance teacher or simply someone who loves to dance, then One Day One Dance is the perfect way to express your passion for peace on or around Peace Day, 21 September. Whether you choreograph a dance, dedicate your lesson or organize a flash mob – One Day One Dance is open to your creative interpretation.
‘ONE’ is the Peace Day anthem, bringing artists from across the African continent together for peace and unity. Produced by Coke Studio in Nairobi it features Zwai Bala (South Africa), Ice Prince (Nigeria), Dama Do Bling (Mozambique), Maurice Kirya (Uganda), Alikiba (Tanzania) and Wangechi (Kenya).This anthem is supporting Peace One Day to raise awareness of Peace Day, 21 September in the Great Lakes region of Africa and across the world.
Sporting for Peace
Use Sports as a Catalyst for Peace
Sport has the power to change the world…it has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers.
If you love sport then harness its power to transcend boundaries on Peace Day. We invite you to bring the world together in sporting arenas of any scale, from grassroots fields to large stadia, to unite not only players and fans but communities and even nations.
It’s simple, all you need to do is organize a sports event or get on board with one of PeaceOneDay.org‘s sports initiatives
