African Voices for Hope and Peace will offer a room of interactive workshops to evoke higher states of consciousness.
African Voices for Hope and Peace is an initiative of the Brahma Kumaris, bringing the artists, storytellers, meditators, and poets of Africa to share a message of hope and peace for the continent and the world.
During the day, they will showcase some artistic expressions from various countries on the continent, have an interactive exhibition in the Secunda Room for participants to explore discovering their deeper self, and also experiment with meditation. Together with short talks, there will also be a silent room for quiet reflection.
