  • A Toast To Peace

    Berlin, a city once known for its division, celebrated the 25th anniversary of its unification on Sunday November 9. CITYarts was happy to be a part of the festivities. While most of the city was focusing on the past, we were aiming at raising awareness to the future of Peace. One of our students noted, the past generations had the war wall. We, the young generation, are connected with our Peace Wall.

    The CITYarts Peace Wall in Berlin is a testament to the rich historical and emotional significance of walls in the city and a permanent symbol of the voices of our youth striving for peace and unity. CITYarts' Toast to Peace brought together people from different cultures and backgrounds, young and older. It was a great way to commemorate the momentous occasion and continue to spread peace in Berlin and around the world. View our wonderful photos from the celebration.
