    Cultural Event - Brussels, Belgium

    The EESC will host an exhibition called "Images of Forgiveness", a sensitive project chosen as part of the Committee's activities to commemorate the anniversary of the First World War.

     

    "Images of Forgiveness" is the brainchild of the British journalist Marina Cantacuzino and the photographer Brian Moody, who have collected numerous stories of people whose lives have been shattered by violence, tragedy and injustice and who are learning to forgive, reconcile and move on.

    The opening will be held on 21 January 2015 at 7 pm at the JDE Foyer 6. The exhibition will remain, at the ground floor of JDE, until 4 February 2015.
