Peace Philanthropy Travelling Exhibition 

Peace Philanthropy - Then and Now. In the Footsteps of Andrew Carnegie

An international travelling exhibition to celebrate the centenary of the Peace Palace in The Hague.

15 August - 21 September 2013

Atrium, City Hall,
 Spui 70, The Hague
 The Netherlands

The exhibition shows the changing tradition of peace philanthropy, illustrated by cases of known and less-known individuals. After an introduction about ‘the gift of Carnegie’, important historical figures in the tradition of peace philanthropy will be introduced, including Alfred Nobel, Henry Ford and Hague banker Johan Wateler. This line is then extended to contemporary examples, such as Joan Kroc and Ted Turner. The exhibition will be on display in the large Atrium of the city hall from 15 August until 21 September 2013 (International Peace Day), after which it is available for travel worldwide. The official opening is planned on 3 September, at the beginning of the academic year. Texts are both in English and the language of the exhibiting country.

Peace Palace Philanthropy Gala 

During the evening of the symposium, the 2nd of September, the “Peace Palace Philanthropy Gala” takes place in the Hall of Knights. This special event is organised by the Carnegie Foundation and Communication Consultancy Winkelman Van Hessen.

The Peace Palace Philanthropy Gala will be an exclusive occasion with a splendid dinner at 19:30h in the Hall of Knights, which has been inspired by the menu of the first Hague Peace Conference in 1899. The dinner will be preceded by a reception, which begins at 18:00h.

Under the central theme of peace and philanthropy, leading international speakers will share their thoughts, including Gillian Sorensen (United Nations Foundation), William Thomson (great grandson of Scots-American philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie, Honorary President of the Carnegie United Kingdom Trust) and Cora Weiss (President of The Hague Appeal for Peace).
