The Peace Labyrinth
On conflicts, how they arise, and ways they can be resolved
Jerusalem Interactive Exhibition Bloomfield Science Museum
The Peace Labyrinth is an interactive exhibition first presented in the Netherlands by Peace Education Projects. The exhibition introduces visiting children and teenagers to issues, points of view and dilemmas that affect the course of interpersonal and inter-group relations. In recent years, various forms of the exhibition have been mounted in a number of European countries. A joint initiative by the Jerusalem Foundation, the Olivestone Trust and the Bloomfield Science Museum Jerusalem brought the Peace Labyrinth to Israel in a format relevant to the dilemmas and issues surrounding Israel and Jerusalem. In Jerusalem today, several organizations conduct informal education programs on the subjects of coexistence, democracy and tolerance. Some of these programs are designed for city schools and adapted to various age levels and educational values. The program activities are conducted in a number of forms, such as mixed-group discussions (Arab-Jewish, religious-secular), joint projects, and classroom activitiesâ€”all of which acquaint participants with the "Other". The Peace Labyrinth weaves elements of these programs into one fabric and attempts to reach the population of fifth- and sixth-grade students in Jerusalem, providing the widest possible forum for addressing the issues at hand. Through involvement with its interactive elements, the exhibition enriches the experience of the visitors and challenges them to examine their views about the issues.
