When am I at peace? Is my country peaceful? Can I make real change?

Students from Wellington East Girls’ College give their moving responses to these complex questions. The girls, from several different faiths and cultures, have worked with Voice Arts to create this thought-provoking work.

Marama Fox, co-leader of the Māori Party, and Susan Devoy, Race Relations Commissioner, are guest speakers.

Plus, a group of singers perform ‘I Can’t Keep Quiet’, the stirring song from the Women’s March on Washington.
