ONLINE SIT-IN SILENCE FOR PEACE

Online + live at the Blinkhuis, Vlaanderenstraat 53, Ghent (in limited group)

Silence often is the missing voice in a debate or protest. Silence brings peace within ourselves and connects with the other from heart to heart. Silence can give us space for real change. By sitting in silence we work to restore balance between inner and outer climate. Silence for Peace Gent 2020 invites you to sit with us for a short or longer period of time. You can either join us online or live at the BlinkHuis. In good weather the sit-in takes place outside on the terrace, in bad weather we sit inside.

Participation: free of charge

Practical: You can join whenever and for how long you want.

Participate through Zoom here
