Our Peace Concert – June 2019
Community Peace Day November 2018
You can see images from our previous events on our web pages.
How did people share their cultures during the First World War?
The Imperial War Museum, amongst its vast archival resources, has a wonderful sequence of images that serve to answer this very question.
Whether an image of a French woman chatting to a Maori soldier, or of images of troops on a multitude of war-fronts, sharing their religious practices, you will find interest, inspiration, and yes, hope here.
We were interested to see how great the contribution of the Chinese Labour Corps was to the war in Europe. Some 140,000 men travelled from China by sea, to help European soldiers conduct their war.
We recommend this sequence from the IWM as a wonderful example of how, in the midst of such ferocious human loss, modest, courteous and attentive interactions seem to do away with damaging notions of the other. See more here…
