“Transforming the Human Spirit: From a Culture of Violence to a Culture of Peace” exhibit that will go on display at the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History on September 29, 2012. The exhibit is a production of the Soka Gakkai International (SGI), a lay Buddhist movement of 12 million people around the world that promotes peace, culture and education through personal change and social contribution.
The exhibit poses a number of ethical questions for the viewer to contemplate: how do we ensure freedom from fear? What can we do to promote human security? How do humans become more peaceful?
Visitors will view multiple panels, ranging from Ensuring Human Security to Global Efforts for Peace. Each panel asks the reader to imagine a world where the interconnectedness of humans across the globe is paramount and a peaceful world is possible.
The exhibit has been on display in cities around the world, and comes to the Museum from Berlin. A panel discussion about peace and human security is being planned for early October.
“Transforming the Human Spirit” will be on exhibit through October 28, 2012. There is no additional cost, beyond the usual admission rates of $8 for adults and $7 for youth and seniors, to view the exhibit.
