Jonas Åkerlund joined as Global Peace and Non-Violence Ambassador in 2011 and his sculpture "Love All" was exhibited for the first time at the Non-Violence For Peace Tour at the Swedish Open tennis championships in Båstad, Sweden.

Extract from interview in Bring The Noice:
Jonas Åkerlund, it’s no understatement to say, is the Stanley Kubrick (or Steven Spielberg…or Orson Welles) of the music video world. He’s a living legend in the music industry having directed promos for artists from Madonna and Maroon 5 to Rammstein and Metallica, although he’s perhaps most recognised for his award winning mini-cine epics Paparazzi and Telephone for Lady Gaga. In between making music videos he’s directed countless adverts but Small Apartments marks only his third foray into narrative feature film making – and even this was shot in only 20 days in a year where he also completed five music videos and over 30 commercials.
