Greater Moncton is an International City of Peace!

International Peace Day - September 21, 2020

In an historic event, the mayors of the Tri-Community of Moncton, Dieppe and Riverview signed a proclamation to become an International City of Peace! To celebrate, we are inviting citizens and organizations of our community to help define and imagine our culture of peace by creating an online peace mosaic together.

The Peace Mosaic Project

We hope to engage thousands of people in expressing what peace means to them by submitting pictures with definitions, experiences, hopes and desires for peace as individuals and as a community. The pictures that you submit will be captured in an online software tool that will build an interactive online mosaic similar to the example below. Each individual picture submitted will be a “tile” on the mosaic.

Mosaic Symbolism

The mosaic represents how everyone, working together, can create a culture of peace where everyone feels connected and included, that they belong and that they can thrive. To expand our collective sense and experience of peace, everyone is important. By uniting with our contributions, creativity, and caring, we expand the possibilities and potential for everyone. This is our art of peace and a legacy for future generations.

(Contributions accepted until December 31. The final mosaic will be unveiled in January, 2021)

 

Photo Sizing Instructions

The dimensions of the "tiles" in the final mosaic will be square 1:1 (1 wide x 1 tall). This means that for best results, it is best to submit pictures where the important part of the picture can fit in a square. Pictures of other dimensions will be cropped to 1:1. If you have write words on your pictures, make sure that the words fit within this size too. We also suggest that you submit high quality pictures of at least 1200 x 1200 pixels in resolution. See the examples below.

Picture size/cropping is OK

Picture size/cropping is not optimal
