This Light that Pushes Me - Stories of African Quaker Peacebuilders

When: Thursday 20th November 2014 to Thursday 11th December 2014
Where: St Stephens Church, 21 St. Stephen’s Street, Bristol, BS1 1EQ

An exhibition featuring peacebuilders from seven sub-Saharan African countries using photographs and personal testimonies. All have experienced some form of violence. The  exhibition traces the journeys that have transformed that suffering into a force for social change.

This exhibition features 20 people who are Quaker or involved in Quaker peacebuilding work. Each story is not intended to encapsulate a person, but rather emphasises an aspect of their journey (from violence, to healing, to activism).

Taken together, they tell a collective story that stretches beyond these individuals, to countless others for whom the drive to build peace comes from deep within, to others who also feel “this light that pushes me”.
