Selkirk College Peace Studies students put on a display called ‘An Alternative Timeline of History’, on Nov 29, 2011. What made this timeline unique is that is showed historical events highlighting nonviolence. Many of the history books and traditional timelines we learn from feature wars, conquests and military heroes, whereas this timeline displayed history from a more peaceful perspective. Selkirk College students added interactive elements to the display with food, video, music and an Imagine Peace Wish Tree.
The attached photos show how the event filled the common student area at the college, attracting a lot of attention, and a close-up of the Wish Tree.
love and peace,
