ART EXHIBTIONS

Since 2011 the Planetary Healing Artists (Healing Arts) have presented an annual group art exhibition each year with a different theme. Last year, we organized  One World Multifaith/Multicultural Art Exhibition for world peace from 21st September – 1st October 2017

The Opening Celebration was on UN International Peace Day, on the 21st September 2017, with wonderful cultural music and multicultural food shared that evening. Faith artists, Justin Edwards, Kerrin Samuel, Lloyd Godman and faith leader, Father Bob Maguire were invited to discuss the importance of their art in bringing people together for World Peace. The audience experienced the artist’s journey’, so understanding could grow and boundaries broken down.

It was an artistic exploration of spirituality, faith and belief, dedicated to World Peace. Artists from the City of Port Phillip, and further afield, exhibited their works.

Thirty-eight artists were represented covering around sixty amazing artworks. 

The “One World” Multi-faith / Inter-spiritual Art Exhibition was generously funded by the City of Port Phillip, supported by COMMON, Women’s Interfaith Network Foundation and other Multifaith Networks. The exhibition was held to promote understanding and compassion, to unite for peace and the common goal of a better world for all humanity. A variety of innovative art works celebrated the theme One World, through the visual arts, and explored the common connections between people from diverse faiths and beliefs, for a harmonious humanity. Artists shared their beliefs and spirituality, drawing from their inner life experiences, reflections and personal journeys. Together We Made A Difference joining together to spread peace, love and unity.

Our Art Exhibition theme for this year 2018, is to be decided. Perhaps we will continue with our theme for World Peace.
