Arts 4 Peace Awards ?are the first ever collective celebration of the arts of every culture around the world. The purpose of these awards is to demonstrate to each nation how vitally important their culture is to the whole fabric of our world. Despite diversity & different cultures, it is through art that we can experience these cultures as one person with one creative mind and heart.
Arts 4 Peace Awards? vision is to provide opportunities to artists of all ages – spanning seven continents, who will be sponsored locally and celebrated globally.
The awards have been created by Ms. Munni Irone of Beverly Hills. Known as the Beverly Hills Queen, Munni is the founder & president of the Awards. It is Ms. Munni?s desire to create a world that works for everyone with no one left behind. “Art is the way that we can experience the oneness between us all,” said Ms. Irone. ?I believe these awards will not only serve to lift up these wonderful artists and their cultures, but collectively this will lift the cooperation between all nations?, she added.
Awards are given for master works that best represent a message of peace ?in the?following categories: Dance, Music, Sculpture, Painting, Film, Martial Arts and Culinary Art. Each category will have separate divisions for entry nominated by someone or submitted directly by the artist.
