On November 11th, 2018, communities across Canada will honour the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War with Bells of Peace. Bells of Peace will encourage a bell to be rung 100 times in communities across the country, which will emulate the moment in 1918 when church bells across Europe tolled as four years of war had finally come to an end.
Please join them in appreciating the artistry and meaning behind the Toronto Love Project, and in taking a brief moment of silence at the time the bells ring. Materials will be available for community members to fill out their own messages on heart cut-outs, which will be added to the final display of this collaborative art installation.
