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.

 

Boy in front of sculpture

Peter, a young boy who attends the ECS school in Malakal, stands in front of a sculpture by Bishop Hilary. The son of a soldier, he has seen at first hand the consequences of war; but still, even after the peace agreement, he lives in the soldiers' barracks and regularly falls asleep to the sound of gunfire.
