This Festival promotes values of nonviolence, peace and harmony which were strongly encouraged by Gandhi, who believed in an equal and inclusive society despite ethnicity, religion, social and economic status. The Festival brings together scholars, businesses, students and communities across diverse cultural, religious and economic background from Australia and overseas to celebrate via a two-day program within Ipswich and Brisbane. In addition, the Festival focuses on promoting cultural and business networking platforms.

The Festival will commence with an Official Welcome Reception featuring a Forum and Dinner on “Peace, Nonviolence and Inclusiveness: Are Gandhi Values Relevant in the 21st Century?” at the Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art on Saturday 28th October 2017. The event runs from 4 pm to 8.15 pm booking required.

We are focused on bringing distinguished speakers from diverse backgrounds including ethnicity, religion and gender from industry and academia in Australia and overseas. The Panel members will share insights, discussion and deliberation on the relevance of Gandhi’s values for a better humanitarian society in the 21st Century.

The confirmed speakers at this Forum are: Ms Maxine McKew, Mr Neville Roach AO, Ms Rabia Siddique, Mr Peter Varghese AO, Ms Carol Angir and Prof Amitabh Mattoo. We also have a special appearance of Dr Ela Gandhi, granddaughter of Mahatma Gandhi who will participate from South Africa. This event will be live streamed across the word to all those who sign the “Support Power of Peace” web page.

On Sunday 29th October, the Festival includes an inauguration at the Mahatma Gandhi Inspiration Bridge, Cultural Program at Robelle Domain, Re-enactment of Gandhi Salt March, Power of Peace Train Ride, Peace Parade in Springfield (Ipswich) and Roma St Gardens (Brisbane). Also featured will be Ishara Puppet Show in Springfield Central and in Roma Street Parklands. This world famous group uses puppetry as a medium to entertain and educate without the use of language. We will have dignitaries, diplomatic representatives, businesses, bilateral Chambers, communities and students from other regions, states and overseas participating in this Festival. The key activities will be live streamed across the world.
