AMEN Project: Artists Movement to End Violence
October 26 - November 11, 2012
The AMEN Project started in response to a church burning incident in Gireif, a residential area in Khartoum, Sudan which occurred earlier this year in April. Sudanese/Amercian artist Khalid Kodi, adjunct professor of the Fine Arts Department at Boston College, initiated the project with the help of a multi-religious and multi-ethnic team of artists who are students at Boston College. The team spent Summer 2012 working on a series of large-scale, high-quality biblical paintings as part of a greater effort to rebuild the Church in Khartoum. The project is firmly rooted in universal principles of and commitment to peaceful co-existence and social justice.
In addition to painting, the AMEN Project conducted interviews with leaders in the fields of education and religion; Dr. Abdel-Rahman Ibrahim Mohamed, Father David Hollenbach, S.J, Professor Catherine Cornille, Professor John Michalczyk, Professor Crystal Tiala, and Father Raymond Helmick, S.J. who commented on the meanings of the church burning incident, and on the response Professor Kodi and his students initiated. These interviews are available to watch online on the AMEN project website.
