Oct 9th Reykjavík, Iceland: IMAGINE PEACE TOWER & John Lennon memorial concert

IPTS-680

In honour of the lighting of IMAGINE PEACE TOWER on 9th October 2009, Yoko Ono offers the general public free ferry crossings to Viðey on 9th, 10th and 11th October and invites them to attend a memorial concert for John Lennon at Hafnarhús (The Harbor House at The Reykjavík Art Museum) on 9th October at 22:00.

Yoko Ono has invited The Icelandic Red Cross to organise a charitable collection at these events. The donations will be used to support families who have suffered difficulties due to the economic contraction of recent months. Families and individuals can seek support and counselling at Red Cross House, Borgartun 25.

The work of the Red Cross draws on many years of experience in responding to emergency situations. Their activities are constantly being adapted with a view to providing the assistance that is most urgenty required in any particular situation. The Red Cross also offers annual assistance to families around the country at Christmas time.

Hafnarhús, located in downtown Reykjavík, serves as the Reykjavík Art Museum’s institute of contemporary art. New developments in art are explored through diverse exhibitions of Icelandic and international artists. An exhibition of paintings by the Pop artist Erró is a permanent feature. Hafnarhús has a restaurant with a beautiful view over the harbour.
