Join alumni from Conrad Grebel University College to hear from Ted and Darlene Enns Dyck winners of the 2016 distinguished Alumni Service Award about their experience with refugee resettlement in Altona Manitoba.
Earth Peace, by Carol Ann Weaver, recently composed and compiled in South Africa and Namibia, tells global stories of conflict, pain, resolution and joy. The work contains choral music, string quartet, and readings which represent various troubled parts of our world.
Educators, parents, youth and community members are invited to join in the launch reception of The Ripple Effect Education (TREE), a peace education initiative based in the Epp Peace Incubator in the Kindred Credit Union Centre for Peace Advancement.
Whether you're a music buff or a movie buff, a student or a community member, Grebel's Peace Week offers you meaningful ways to acknowledge the 2016 International Day of Peace.
