III Marist Art and Culture Exhibition

04/11/2009: Brazil

During the Third Marist Exhibition of Art and Culture, held in Maceió, some 500 students from 16 Brasilian states took part on 20 October 2009 in a march for peace on the beach of Pajuçara. The demonstration provided the kick-off to the « For life, for peace! » campaign, in which many church and civil institutions of the State of Alagoas took part.

During the march, which went from the beach of Sete Coqueiros to the Place Multieventos, the participants: students, teachers, families, marchers, workers, motorcyclists, were filled with joy and a spirit of communion… in a climate of solidarity and kindness. The students proudly waved the Marist flag along the way; they sang the exhibition hymn, as well as other songs associated with the theme of peace. Along the course of the march, 25,000 roses were distributed by volunteers from civil and other organizations.

With a programme filled with cultural activities, such as music, theatre, literature and the plastic arts, the Marist Exhibition of Art and Culture has as aim to promote art and brotherhood among the representatives of Marist schools from many regions of Brasil.
