Iranian Peace Kitchen
Dear followers of the Peace Hero Museum, on Saturday, November 19th, the Peace Museum Vienna hosted one of its main events: Peace Kitchen. It consists in gathering people from different cultures in our Museum to let them discover a typical meal from another country, to take the chance and show how we are all even and we share the same humanity. This historic event of the PMV is part of our Peace Education project: we try to show in front of a tasty meal how Peace starts from small things and to explain to our public how being curious of one another and being open to knowing each other is the ground for building up a better world.
This time we organized an Iranian Peace Kitchen in honor of our Iranian friend Behnaz Monfared, who has been hosting an exhibition here at the Peace Museum Vienna. She and our new volunteer Hedieh Hosseini cooked together a typical vegetarian Persian meal for us and the public! The lights of the current exhibition made us relax and favored communication about peace around the world. We specifically asked some of our guests what Peace means to them, discovering how such a concept is not easy to define and how many people share different words always the same perceptions.
