Kathy Kelly is Co-coordinator of Creative Voices for Non-Violence, and a three time Nobel Peace Prize nominee. She has visited Afghanistan seven times since May 2010, bringing back stories of the way war impacts the lives of ordinary people.
This talk is organized in conjunction with Windows & Mirrors,a provocative art exhibit on the human cost of war which features reproductions of murals created by U.S. and international artists to memorialize the civilian causalities in Afghanistan. These windows on a war-torn country are also mirrors reflecting our own identity as a nation at war.
The exhibit is available during regular hours from September 1 to 30th, and a number of programs featuring nationally known activists are being held in conjunction with Windows and Mirrors.
