Taipei, July 6 (CNA) A touring exhibition of artworks created by kids all over the world to spread love and hope for children in war-torn Ukraine has arrived in Taiwan and has opened in Yilan County.
The “2022 I draw PEACE” exhibit is being held July 5 to Aug. 31 at Yilan’s Dancewood Museum, as part of the “Children Draw the World” exhibition that was launched in the Czech Republic in April.
The “2022 I draw PEACE” exhibition features 210 artworks contributed by children in countries around world, including Taiwan, according to a news release by Dancewoods Hotels And Resorts, which is sponsoring the Taiwan tour.
The call for children’s art was issued earlier this year by Lviv Children’s Art Gallery and the Kherson educational-aesthetic complex Artistic school, both in Ukraine, which said the goal was to offer love and hope to the country’s children, amid the invasion by Russian military forces.
“The Peace Relay actively involves children all over the world who want to be happy and live in peace, no matter where they are. Peace is and will always be relevant as long as humanity exists,” Lviv Children’s Art Gallery says on its website.
Dancewoods said it hopes the public will visit the exhibition in Taiwan, the first Asian stop on its tour, to see the impact of the Ukraine-Russia war on children, from the kids’ own perspective, and to appreciate the value of peace.
The relay of the 1,200-plus works of art, most of which were done by Ukrainian children, was scheduled to go to Mexico, Slovakia, Turkey, Bulgaria, Norway, and other countries, according to Dancewoods.
