Name of the project : International Exhibition
« Paintful Peace "
Art. Christianity. Peace.
It is a cultural and humanitarian project.
The aim of the project : to unite the painters from different countries in order to promote peace and remind that all people represented here by 3 painters from countries as Georgia, Ukraine and Russia have so much in common together. First of all, the Art unites hearts. Second of all, the Christianity unites spirits. Third of all, the Peace unites minds.
Deontology: Our competition is apolitical. In the current geopolitical context, we believe it is highly important to remind people about solidarity, friendship and humanism. So, we work through exhibition to share the values of peace. Our partners are people and companies who show their enthusiasm for this project.

International NGO “Club de Chance” organizes every year the International Children’s Drawing Competition « Draw Me Peace »
In 2017 we received more than 2000 drawings from 30 countries of the world. The organizers of this event have noticed that an important number of participants were children coming from regions and countries with armed conflicts. They have also discovered that this drawing contest encourages people, both young and old, to look more closely at the current situation in the world in which “when parents make war, children draw peace”.
The winners of the Competition – the best 53 drawings of the world about the Peace will be introduced during the exhibition “Paintful Peace” in April 2017 in Tbilisi, Georgia
The exhibition will be held from 20 till 24 of April in Tumanishvili Theatre, 164 David Agmashenebeli Ave, Tbilisi.
The vernissage is on the 20th at 19.00.
