The NYU Value Creation Society-Buddhism in Action Campus Club will be hosting a dialogue on changing from a culture of violence to a culture of peace, addressing the  topics of peace, security and human rights.  The dialogue will be based on the SGI-USA's “From a Culture of Violence to a Culture of Peace: Transforming the Human Spirit” exhibition on view from February 2nd to the 8th, in the 8th Floor Kimmel Gallery.

SGI-USA’s newest exhibition “From a Culture of Violence to a Culture of Peace: Transforming the Human Spirit” was launched in support of the People’s Decade for Nuclear Abolition and in commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of declaration against nuclear weapons issued by second Soka Gakkai president Josei Toda. This exhibition presents issues on nuclear weapons through the lens of human security, while placing the work of nuclear abolition at the heart of building a culture of peace. The venues where the exhibit has been shown include the Melbourne Parliament of World religions, the University of Hawaii, the University of Hong Kong, the New Zealand Parliament, the Cooper Union in New York City, the UN Office at Geneva during the preparatory session of the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) in 2008, the Oslo City Hall Gallery, and the Cibao Grand Theater, Santiago, Dominican Republic, Malaysia, Taiwan as well as numerous venues across the United States.

“The real struggle of the twenty- first century will not be between civilizations, nor between religions. It will be between violence and non-violence. It will be between barbarity and civilization in the truest sense of the word.” — Daisaku Ikeda, The Courage of Nonviolence

Valid ID is required for entrance into NYU's Kimmel Center.
