On Saturday, Sept. 20 you can join the Austin community in a really unique, free, public event — creating a huge human peace sign! Everyone is invited to meet at the Long Center Terrace at noon to stand in the form of a peace sign that will be photographed and circulated through local social media in celebration of International Peace Day.


Following the photograph, all are invited inside the Rollins Studio Theatre for Poems for Peace, readings of inspiring poems from local performers. Admission is free.

These activities lead up to International Peace Day, September 21, which was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981 where all are urged all to commemorate peace through education and public awareness every year.
