Sudan: The art of reconciliation

Sudan's civil war finally came to an end in 2005, after claiming 2 million lives.

The Art of Reconciliation was southern Sudan's first art exhibition after the cessation of hostilities.

It featured work by Sudanese artists and school children, and was the brainchild of Bishop Hilary of Malakal from our partner, the Episcopal Church in Sudan (ECS).  

It toured in the UK in the summer of 2008 and stopped off at that year's Lambeth Conference of Anglican bishops in Canterbury.


Three heads

Each of these figures by artist Abdel Rahman Shangal represents one of the three main ethnic groups that live in Malakal - a town on the banks of the Nile in southern Sudan. The Shilluk, Nuer and Dinka (from left to right) all have distinctive facial markings.
