Skopje is inviting all students worldwide on BA, MA and PhD studies of fine arts, design, visual arts, to enter the 7th International Student Poster Competition.
The main objective of this competition is the world peace and the human rights issues.Can a designer act as peacemaker in the world?
So far the known synonyms for “peace” include “amity,” “friendship,” “harmony,” “concord,” “tranquility,” “repose,” “quiescence,” “truce,” “pacification,” and “neutrality”. While some of these descriptions are appropriate, they are still quite limited in describing both the nature of peace and the role of the peacemaker.
Any attempt to articulate the nature of peace and peacemaking, therefore, must address those conditions which are favorable to their emergence. Freedom, human rights, andjustice are among such prerequisites. Also included are proactive strategies such as conflict resolution, non-violent action, community building, and democratization of authority.
