‘Seek Peace and Pursue it’ photography exhibition opens at GFI Gallery

A new and innovative photography exhibition has made its way to the GFI Art Gallery in Port Elizabeth, thanks to the assistance of the PE branch of the Businesswomen’s Association (BWA) of South Africa and the Let’s Talk Movement.

The ‘Seek Peace and Pursue it’ photography exhibition is a joint venture between the Let’s Talk Movement and the BWA of South Africa Port Elizabeth, who, after attending and participating in several workshops presented by the movement, are committed to working towards building Peace in our communities by confronting and speaking out against prejudice and intolerance.

The members of the BWA were encouraged to submit a photo for this exhibition of an image that captured their ‘peace’ and what they found peaceful in their often stressful lives.

The aim of this movement is to promote peace by building healthy relationships through understanding and acceptance of our differences and diversity, thereby celebrating our sameness by confronting and understanding prejudice.

The photos will be on display from the 24th of April until the 1st of May 2018 in the GFI Art Gallery in Park Drive.
