Peace Rainbows – Eirinia Toxa: Painting exhibition at Elefsina’s Old Town Hall

11.05.2022

An important painting exhibition with distinguished works by young artists is hosted at Elefsina’s Old Town Hall. 2023 Eleusis European Capital of Culture, in collaboration with the European Parliament Office in Greece and the Children’s Art Gallery of Greece, organize the artistic programme for children and adolescents, entitled “Eirinia Toxa” (Peace Rainbows), as part of the 2022 Europe Day celebrations. Peace is the main objective of a united Europe. The prevalence of peace has always been the essential condition for progress in every sphere of life. On the contrary, war—as history teaches us and as we are clearly experiencing once again with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine—only causes destruction, problems and sorrow.

Against the war cries, the European Union upholds the principles and values of freedom, democracy and respect for human rights. Young artists are mobilizing their brushes to restore the “peace” rainbows over Europe and around the world. With the power of art as our ally, we are shouting a resounding NO to war and we are painting the dream of all the world’s children, the greatest “peace” rainbow, to rise and shine forever throughout the world.

The Old Town Hall of Elefsina was renovated with the kind sponsorship of the company METRON S.A.
