Internationally renowned artist spreads message of peace

16 March 2016

Internationally renowned artist and peace activist William Kelly will feature at this month’s Kingston Interfaith Art of Peace Dinner.

Born in New York City, William Kelly was the recipient of the prestigious Courage of Conscience Award from the Peace Abby in America and is the only visual artist to receive an Australian Violence Prevention Award from the Prime Minister.

He will discuss his work, which has been exhibited in over 20 countries across the world, including the award winning Peace Project sparked by Melbourne’s 1987 Queen Street shootings.

The Kingston Interfaith network aims to build connections and conversation between different faith groups in the community.

Kingston Mayor Tamsin Bearsley said Kingston was proud to support this event which aims to strengthen interfaith links and help build peace and understanding in our community.

“We’re proud to live in a multicultural community where people of many different cultures and faiths live with peace and respect,” Cr Bearsley said.

“Groups like the Kingston Interfaith Network do a fantastic job of creating a stronger and more connected community by building friendships and understanding across different faith groups.”

The Kingston Interfaith Network meets monthly and hosts events throughout the year.


The Kingston Interfaith Art of Peace Dinner is on 7pm-9pm Wednesday 23 March at Southern Community Church of Christ in Cheltenham. 

All welcome, bookings essential, for the night of multicultural food and entertainment.
