Peace and Quiet

Peace and Quiet

This event is now in the past.

Explore personal, social and political ideas of peace in Peace and Quiet. This community generated exhibition, led by artists Elizabeth Woods and Kevin Leong, collects the thoughts and gestures of contemporary Queenslanders at peacetime, against the backdrop of growing global political conflict.

Immerse yourself in the handiwork of Queensland communities that have shared their diverse ideas and desires for peace, with handmade national flags created in white, and a collection of early and current placards from the peace movement. Reflect on hundreds of peaceful landscape artworks contributed by the community, which have been mounted over the First World War wallpaper from Distant Lines: Queensland voices of the First World War, providing a powerful reminder of what is lost in times of war.

Uncover the hopes, dreams and realities of those directly affected by political conflict, and watch community performances that are both forthright and meditative.

Through a range of interactive programs and workshops, you too can share your vision for peace.

Part of Q ANZAC 100: Memories for a New Generation, proudly supported by the Queensland Government.
