Playing for Peace: Olympics-related Resources
Sport, Courage, Peace and Friendship
Playing for Peace is an exhibition that consists of 24 colour panels that explore how the Olympic Values may create a more peaceful world. They consider the role of sport in breaking down barriers between people, in the struggle for human rights and in promoting peace. The images and text explain how sport has been used to bring different people together to discover what they have in common.
Playing for Peace is the result of collaboration between The Peace Museum and the Centre for Peace and Reconciliation Studies, Coventry University. It has been awarded a London 2012 Olympic Truce Inspired Mark - one of only seven projects nationwide to be awarded this honour. The exhibition was officially launched by David Moorcroft, the former 5000m World Record Holder.
