A peacebuilding art exhibition featuring 40 premier and emerging Egyptian, Middle Eastern and Western artists using the world’s most ancient symbol of harmony, the Egyptian Ankh (Key of Life), as a message of hope for a harmonious, peaceful and tolerant world.


THE KEY, the 2016 CARAVAN Exhibition of Art, uses the world’s most ancient symbol of harmony and pluralism, the Egyptian Ankh (known as the “Key of Life”) as the canvas for a contemporary message of hope for a harmonious, peaceful and tolerant world.  THE KEY showcases the work of 40 premier and emerging Egyptian, Middle Eastern and Western contemporary artists using a modern 3D fiberglass portrayal of the Ankh (an ancient Egyptian hieroglyph that read “life”) as a means of engendering harmony and peace among people of cultural heritages and faith backgrounds.

Designed to grab the imagination, the exhibition will inspire its viewers to realize what is possible and how we can all play a part in shaping our world into one where understanding and compassion are valued above all. 

Commenting on THE KEY, Rev. Chandler, the President of CARAVAN says, “With the gap of understanding, trust and love between the Middle East and West, in many ways wider than ever, like never before ‘creative demonstrations of dialogue and peacebuilding’ are critically needed. And art can help us see someone different than ourselves for whom they really are; that they are actually like us”.
