Making World Peace performance and workshop by Penelope Thompson-Chuncheon International Mime Festival, Korea. May 30, 31 2009

I was invited to perform in the Chuncheon International Mime Festival (CIMF) Experience Program on May 30, 31. On the Saturday we had 2 groups of young Korean schoolchildren to watch my performance and then participate in world peace-themed activities such as coloring world peace pictures and writing wishes for peace.

"Making World Peace" is an ongoing interactive community art performance where world peace is symbolized by a knitted scarf. It started in 2004 as an art experience project for middle school students in the country town of Chilwon in southern Korea. Since then the world peace scarf has slowly grown during many performances in various cities across Korea.
