This is an extraordinarily powerful exhibition that pays tribute to a century of peace making and a wide range of peacemakers across the globe. At the same time it serves as a call to action for ordinary citizens to become involved in peace activities of all kinds, and in so doing to promote a global culture of peace. I would like to ask you to do all you possibly can in bringing Making Peace to your city.
— Federico Mayor Zaragoza, President of the Foundation for a Culture of Peace and former Director-General of UNESCO
The Making Peace exhibition will remind us and visitors to our City of the distance that we have travelled along the road to peace and the journey that must still be completed before we can achieve the vision of human dignity, equality and non-‐discrimination that is articulated in our Constitution. It will also inspire us with the examples of those - throughout the international community ‐ who have helped to work for peace and who continue to strive for a world without warfare, conflict and violence.
— FW de Klerk, Former President of South Africa (1989-1994) and Nobel Peace Prize laureate (1993) officially opened Making Peace in Cape Town a
