Storytellers for Peace Celebrate the 30th Anniversary Of the Fall Of The Berlin's Wall


This year we will celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Berlin Wall's fall. More than ever today, we are watching the rise of new and dangerous walls to divide people, breaking hopes, dreams and lives too.

We invite you to join us and listen our collective video about the walls between us.

"Storytellers for Peace" was born in June 2016. It is an international network of narrators who create collective stories through videos.

Artists come from all over the world and tell stories about peace, justice, equality and human rights.
