Kingston Peace Wall

Supported by: Julian Vogel, Capoeira Alafia/GCC-J and UNICEF

In November, Capoeira Alafia assisted German graffiti artist Julian Vogel during his stay in Kingston. The artist seeks to raise awareness for the social and political situation in violence and war stricken countries around the world and chose Jamaica as venue for the 3rd World Peace Wall.

The Eastern Peace Center, located at the Mountain View community became host of the project which has also been supported by the UNICEF Jamaica office.

Children and adults from the Mountain View community welcomed Julian Vogel at the center and embraced the project by participating actively in the process of painting the Peace Wall. Capoeira students as well as local artists expressed and shared their views and visions for a more peaceful Jamaica, painting and reasoning together for several days.

With much joy we have witnessed the enthusiasm of the participating children and youths and are glad to have been able to support this creative initiative.
