A flash mob performs at last year’s Peace Day celebration

(CNS): The Family Resource Centre (FRC) is planning to celebrate Peace Day on Monday, 21 September, with a flash mob in George Town and special workshops throughout Grand Cayman. As it has for the past four years, the FRC will lead a traffic-stopping flash mob and peace-building sessions.

The Cayman community will join millions of people around the world to celebrate the international observance that aims to foster a global truce within and between nations, through education and by strengthening ideals of non-conflict among people of all ages.

As part of Peace Day activities, the public is invited to take part in a flash mob in front of the Royal Watler Terminal on Fort Street at 12pm. Participants will dance to the song Heroes, which encourages people to live extraordinary lives and find power within themselves.

Dance instruction is available from a tutorial on YouTube, “One Day One Dance Cayman 2015”, or in person at Centre Pointe Dance Studio in Alissta Towers, on 20 September at 5pm.

On Monday evening, every district will take part in peace-building sessions that will focus on developing peaceful relationships and communities in a way that organisers describe as fun and interactive.

FRC team members and teens that are members of the ReTHINK TEEN Leadership programme will lead the workshops at Sir John A. Cumber Primary School, Family Resource Centre and Savannah Primary School from 6pm-8pm. The session at East End Primary School will start at 6:30pm and at Bodden Town Primary School at 7pm. Refreshments will be available.

Members of the public can also purchase Peace Day T-shirts for $10 and join in the partnership for peace.
