Songs for World Peace supports Together Productions
Together Productions believes that the arts can make a difference: bridging social divides, building community, expanding horizons and opening up new perspectives and relationships. We value artists as cultural leaders, and seek to work with others who aim for the highest artistic outcomes whilst embracing creative collaboration, participation and new voices. We are interested in projects that challenge hierarchy and convention, shed light on the unexplored or overlooked, and create spaces for new conversations and otherwise marginalised voices.
"We believe that the arts and music can inspire positive social change."
About International Day of Peace
The International Day of Peace was established in 1981 by the United Nations General Assembly. Two decades later, in 2001, the General Assembly unanimously voted to designate the Day as a period of non-violence and cease-fire.
The United Nations invites all nations and people to honor a cessation of hostilities during the Day, and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.
