Connect For Peace

Connect for Peace

In Bierut, Lebanon on Thursday, October 12th, 2017!
Foch Street, Downtown, Beirut District (In front of Chez Paul)
4:30pm to 7:30pm.

Connect for Peace with Peacelights founder Joumana Rizk, and more like-minded people for an uplifting experience.

A cross between performance art and a peace rally, these powerful street happenings have touched the lives of people from around the globe.

You can watch or participate.
Either way you will feel the power of connecting in this way.


Connect for Peace Events are powerful, public street happenings for peace. We invite strangers to connect with one another in a spirit of openness, spontaneity, and childlike innocence. Peace starts with an authentic connection between two people.

Forget the cares and the worries, the plans and pursuits of the day. Take a moment to connect for peace. Take a moment to really see the person in front of you. Take a moment to say, "I see you" and be genuinely seen in return.

Bungee cords symbolize the connections between all people. When we take the time to realize how connected we are, we can take the first step toward peace. In peace, we become a network of interconnected lights.

Amazing things happen at every Connect for Peace event. It touches something deep. Passersby stop to share intimate details of their lives. Strangers are moved to extraordinary acts of kindness. The premise is simple but the results are incredibly powerful.
