Black Tie International:
CITYarts London Peace Wall


 Sponsors & Volunteers
needed in London,
to create CITYarts Peace Wall
during the Olympics!



We are looking for help to create the Pieces for Peace artwork and painting at the mural site in Hackney, by the Regents' Canal on Dunston Road (under Haggerston Overground Bridge) starting July 28th until late August 2012.


Pieces for Peace is designed to create cultural understanding and tolerance by bringing children from all around the world together to design and create a mural inspired by their tile-size drawings, paintings and poems. Pieces for Peace has already connected youth from 61 countries around the world and we are continuing to reach out to a more countries every day. We have been collecting Pieces for Peace artworks from schools all over London. We will continue to do so throughout the entire creative process.


We are recruiting volunteers and artists that may be interested in participating in our project. We would really love to have a great number of youth participating. Please be in touch with the London Project Coordinator Severine Breton by email to sign up for the project: email - sev.breton@gmail.com . Please feel free to visit our webpage for a list of participants and more information in general about the project: http://www.cityarts.org/Pieces-for-Peace/

CITYarts Announces London Project Team and Request for Sponsors and Volunteers:


Dear Friends,


It is my pleasure to announce that we have selected two artists to collaborate on our London Peace Wall that will begin on July 27th! We are very excited!


Our artists are: Sadie Edginton and Joanna Nowek; who are both artist educators, working together for the last year, as part of Exchange Projects; a collective of 6 local artists' base around Hackney Wick area. Sadie and Joanna have collaborated with local community groups and members to open up a dialogue between local artists and local residents. Sadie's background is in painting and sculpture, but now works in installation and photography. Joanna works in digital photography and design. Both continue their individual artist practice which now has become influenced by community and collaborative work.


The Peace Wall in London would not be possible without our artists, but more so, it would not be possible without our Project Coordinator in London, Severine Breton. Severine is a graduate student at Central Saint Martins, College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London, in Criticism, Communication and Curating. Severine has used this project coordination experience as her Master's Thesis project to document non-profits arts programming, cultural management, economic growth and community participation through the arts.


Other important members of our planning team included:

Christina Ward - A CITYarts Kid right from the start! She came to CITYarts with a fellow student from Stuyvesant High and founded the creation of the Alice in Wall Street Land Mural at 200 Chambers Street one of the murals CITYarts created after 9/11. Now 11 years later, after her graduation from Harvard & recieving a Rhodes Scholarship, Christina now lives in London. She works at Nomura Bank and is still a CITYarts Kid at heart, but all grown up.

Francesca Wilson - Francesca manages the Education Galleries and Department at the Saatchi Gallery in London. CITYarts Pieces for Peace Traveling Exhibition will be on display in the Education Galleries through July and August.

Laurence Watson - He is the grandson of Sir Nicolas Watson. Laurence has taken special interest in helping the community through the creation of public art.

Iga S. and Kleber Ruiz - They are organizers of the Regent's Canal Festival. The Regent's Canal has just this past week celebrated its 200th anniversary. Our mural site is underneath one of the canal overpass bridges.

John Williams and Colette Joyce - They are part of the Diocese of Westminster, who is responsible for helping to create the 100 Days of Peace initiative in London. This initiative aims to celebrate 100 days of peace before, during and after the Olympics.


This is just to name a few key members of the team. Other collaborators include: Simon Pope with the London Overground, Steve Bishop with The University College of London, Alison Denholm with City Arts-Nottingham,  Sherry Von Riesen an Olympian House Mother, Hendrikka Waage with Kids Parliament, Kora Cora Krause, and many of our close CITYarts friends who live in London and surrounding areas.


Special thanks to Howard W. Buffett and Matt Tranchin Co-Founders & Chairmen, of The Global Impact Institute. I will be presenting the Young Minds Build Bridges program at their inaugural Institute on July 26th at the Royal House of Commons. This event is being organized with the help of Matt Tranchin and Amir Dossal. My presentation will feature the Pieces for Peace project and the London Peace Mural.


Thank you to all who have helped make this Peace Mural in London a reality. Special thanks to London Overground for their Permit to work on the wall. Please help us continue to raise funds to cover the cost of this project and help us recruit volunteers. See the volunteer information to the right.


My best regards and wishes for a wonderful and PEACE filled summer and Olympic Games,
