A Piece of Peace
The "A Piece of Peace" (APOP) project focuses a global Richmonds of the World (ROTW) supportive response to the tragic and related terror attacks in New Zealand (3/15) and Sri Lanka (4/21). New Zealand and Sri Lanka are home to 3 of the 92 communities of Richmond around the world: Richmond, Christchurch & Richmond, Nelson in New Zealand and Richmond Hill, Galle, Sri Lanka.

Physically, the project involves the creation of two very large banners (10 feet tall by 36 feet wide) featuring the word PEACE surrounded by an artistic mural promoting peace and unity. Spiritually, the project involves thousands and thousands of Richmonders from many of the Richmonds around the world becoming a piece of peace by participating in this global cooperative effort.

Each banner will be dominated by the 5 letters PEACE, which will be about 7 feet tall in white. Richmonders will become a piece of peace by signing their name to a letter. The goal of this questionnaire is to get your thoughts on the composition of the background mural for each of the two banners (one going to New Zealand and one going to Sri Lanka). Please offer your thoughts and suggestions in as much detail as you desire, as quickly as you are able--hopefully by July 31st.
Should the New Zealand banner mural and the Sri Lanka banner mural be essentially the same, or different?
Which specific peace, unity, togetherness, religious, and other iconic symbols, images, and words should be included in each mural?
What should be the color schemes and overall message of each background mural?
Please suggest subtle artistic opportunities to use certain spaces (like the inside triangle of the “A” in PEACE) to offer certain visual thoughts.
How should the name “Richmond” be presented in the mural, given that “Richmond” is the energy behind this effort?
What else should be considered in the creation of these banners?
