The Leo Savir Foundation for a Mediterranean Vision 2020 within the Peres Center for Peace, Fundación Picasso, and the Newspaper Al-Quds are launching a new project in which young people from the Mediterranean region will compete to express their personal interpretation of Pablo Picasso's famous 1949 painting, Dove of Peace.
Newspapers from the region will be partners to the project, among them Yedioth Ahronot (Israel), Al Ahram (Egypt), Asba (Tunisia), Le Matin (Morocco), and Malta Star (Malta). The panel of judges will be comprised of representatives of the Peres Center for Peace, Fundación Picasso, Al-Quds, and the participating newspapers.
Entries to the competition may be submitted between August 1 and September 30, 2007.
In November, the Picasso Museum in Malaga will conduct a two-day seminar for representatives of the participating newspapers, with the aim of creating an agenda for cooperation among media outlets in the Mediterranean region on the subject of promoting peace.
At the same time, a four-day seminar, devoted to acquaintance and dialogue, will take place for the competition winners.
