A KNOTTED GUN IN YOUR SCHOOL
THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT:
Five steps on how to create a unique manifestation for non-violence and peace on your school. Check out how Samskolan and Viktor Rydbergskolan did it in Sweden:
1. FIND A SPONSOR
In every community thera are people or businesses that want to do good. Get one, or a group of them, to sponsor your white glassfibre replica financially.
2. run the program and a drawing competition
Implement our educational program "Schools For Peace" and invite the students to participate in a drawing competition of your schools's decorated knotted gun. You simply use the drawing sheets (with the original ink drawing of the knotted gun) and ask the students to interpret the symbol any way they want.
3. let the students vote
Let students vote for best design and award the winner.
4. Paint the replica
Invite an artist painter to supervise and inspire the students to fulfill the drawing onto the replika. Be sure to use waterproof colors.
5. Create a Non-violence Day
Plan for a theme day for non-violence and peace and invite students, parents, the local community and local media to the unveiling ceremony for your unique school replica.
