AMEN PROJECTS: Artists Momement to Engage Nonviolence
The AMEN Projects (Artists Movement to Engage Nonviolence) are part of a multi-religious committee of artists, architects, and human rights activists seeking peace and tolerance among all religions.
The first project is to produce all the artwork for the rebuilding of a church in Khartoum, Sudan, which was burned down by religious fanatics on April 21st, 2012. Boston College Adjunct Professor, Khalid Kodi, is overseeing the mural paintings with a group of student artists.
In addition to providing artwork for the church, the AMEN team also works to increase awareness of religious intolerance and the consequences of burning houses of worship. We conduct interviews with scholars, artists, and human rights activits who shed light on their cause.
