Ottawa, January 6, 2021.- The Canadian Nobel Peace Project launched the call for Mail- Art in support of the nomination of the Henry Reeve Brigades for the Nobel Peace Prize 2021, for the commendable work done by Cuban doctors in confronting the COVID-19 pandemic in many countries and on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of its creation.
The Nobel Peace Project was founded in 1998 in Nobel, Ontario, by artists Susan Gold and AG Smith and is an international Mail-Art initiative.
Mail-Art is a popular art movement, consisting of sending small-scale works through the postal service, which began in the 1960s and became a global movement that endures in the present time. The works created as part of this artistic movement are diverseand include books, stamps, seals, collages, videos, audios, 3D objects, digital creations, envelopes and postcards, modified and turned into artistic objects by the senders.
With the slogan "Bring back the honour to the Nobel Peace Prize through the recognition of internationalism, justness, and good work for people of the world, leading the World Peace", those interested are called to send Mail-Art in support of the Cuban medical brigades. The works will be exhibited at the One Ten Park Studio in Windsor, Ontario, on February 1, 2021.
