World Tour, "A Peace Art Journey"
In 2012, the Harmony For Peace Foundation partnered with the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs and presented the “Art for Peace 2012” contest. This art competition called on all young artists to use their creative talents to imagine a “World Free of Nuclear Weapons.” With its launching, over 6600 submissions were sent in from 92 countries.
