Hi guys, :wave:

I have some exciting news to tell you....well....maybe not that exciting.

RISING 16, the second annual gathering of the RISING Global Peace Forum, will be held in Coventry from 15 to 16 November 2016.

Inspired and supported by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the RISING Global Peace Forum was founded in 2015 by a partnership between Coventry University, Coventry Cathedral and Coventry City Council. As the UK’s City of Peace and Reconciliation, Coventry is uniquely placed to demonstrate both the catastrophic consequences of conflict and the transformative power of peace.

RISING 16 brings together politicians, community leaders, academics and members of the public in the common cause of provoking peace.

Working with the students of Coventry University, I will be creating a live mural for their annual gathering in University Square. This event free and open to all.

To conclude the event, Fargo Village is set to host a FREE event celebrating the city's reputation as a symbol of peace and reconciliation.

For more information about this event, visit the Rising 16 website.

Take care watchers!!! :wave:

Asalaamu alaikum = Peace be upon you!

Hi guys, :wave:

At LiFe 2016 in Lincolnshire, Jo Cox MP posthumously received the Lifetime Achievement Award.
 
Helen Joanne "Jo" Cox was a British politician. Before her work in politics, Jo built a career working for charities including NSPCC, Save the Children and Oxfam, which often took her to conflict zones.
 
Jo was an MP who cared how politics can make a difference not just here, but around the world. She called repeatedly for Britain to do more to help the victims of Syria’s civil war.
 
During her time as a MP, Jo Cox fought various social injustices, including the lifting of the blockade of the Gaza Strip and fighting the rise of hate crimes in UK. She also campaigned tirelessly for refugees and championed the benefits of immigration.

Sadly, her life was cut short by a fanatic far-right member.
 
At the festival, I was requested to create a mural dedicated to Jo Cox. It was a huge honour to make a piece of artwork for someone who put her principles before traditional party politics.

In a time of increased racism and xenophobia, we should remember Jo Cox's famous words from her maiden speech to Parliament:

"We are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us."
Jo Cox
1974 - 2016

Eid Mubarak to everyone! :hug:

I pray everyone who reads this lives a happy and long life and everything good you wish and hope for you get.

'Eid Al Adha or 'festival of sacrifice' takes place at the end of Hajj , or when Muslims go to perform their pilgrimage to Mecca. 

People who weren't able to attend also enjoy the blessing of the day by enjoying food, company of friends and family, as well as gifts such as new clothing.

You can go here to read the full article and see more details at Wikipedia - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hajj

Below are some Eid designs I have made over the years while I have been on DA -

Asalaamu alaikum = Peace be upon you! :hug:
