The Stop

My first exposure to this artwork was at the "Big Ideas Student Exhibit" at the Ferry Building in West Vancouver. Students from a variety of schools are asked to interpret the 2009-2011 Biennale art exhibits around Vancouver. The student for this project chose. "Stop Child Soldiers"


It reminded me of a lecture I had attended on Remembrance Day by Lieutenant General Romeo Dallaire. Most of his talk focused on the awareness of child soldiers and prevention. He speaks about the empowerment of the women and education of the children. Please take a minute to visit his website http://www.romeodallaire.com/child-soldiers.html


This is a powerful exhibit when you STOP and think of how it can be applied

Location:Vanier Park, Vancouver BC
