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.

 

Brass relief

There is a long history of war in the Sudan as depicted in this brass relief by artist David Morbe Aquilina. 'If there is peace and no reconciliation, the peace is not meaningful,' says David. 'It's not possible to really find peace with reconciliation because there is pain inside you.'
