Imagine Peace: Intercultural gathering and workshop for friends and families. Videy, Sunday 3 December, 2 p.m.

A creative workshop for friends and families will be held at Viðeyjarstofa (in Viðey island) Saturday, December 3rd from 2 p.m.

The theme of the workshop is based on Yoko Ono’s Imagine Peace Tower, and the words IMAGINE PEACE. Peace, equality and compassion is the focus for a creative writers- and drawing workshop for kids and adults, inspired by Bryndís Björgvinsdóttir´s children´s novel Flugan sem stöðvaði stríðið (The fly that stopped the war), that recently won the Icelandic children’s book prize. Afterwards everyone gets a chance to use their own imagination in words and play in their own mother tongue, in collaboration with Mother Tongue – Association of Bilingualism. The Palestinian poet and journalist Mazen Maarouf will also read few of his works. Mazen is Reykjavík's first ICORN (International Cities of Refuge Network) guest writer.

This is a perfect opportunity for family and friends to get creative and enjoy peace and togetherness in a cosy environment. The coffee house in Viðeyjarstofa will be open all day for those who want to enjoy the selection of refreshments offered. Afterwards a walk to the Imagine Peace Tower is offered for those interested.
