We have created a 25-tile mosaic mural consisting of 9 tiles spelling out "25th" surrounded by 16 tiles from supporting organizations, individuals & families. The 9 inside tiles will be made in traditional mosaic format using recycled materials while the other 16 outside tiles will be collage style using each organization's past materials from Earth Day and/or similar focus. Surplus tiles (over the required 25) that are created will either be swapped with other Peace Tile Murals around the world and/or used to create other Peace Tile Murals in Victoria (TBA depending on the total number of tiles created). The completed Earth Day Commemorative mural will be publicly displayed at the Ferry Tec Wing of Victoria High School in Fernwood for all to share and enjoy.

This is a great opportunity to express your support in the local Grass Roots organizations and demonstrate what we can do when we all come together for a common goal. We are asking individuals, families and organizations to each make a Peace Tile that speaks your message to the world you would like to live in, to the mission and vision of your life.


Contact us and buy a kit ($20.00 min donation) and start making your PEACE TILE then add it to the mural or find how to create your own mural.

After collecting all the Peace Tiles we will create a traveling mural(s). After spending this year around Victoria we will all celebrate the finished mural(s) at next year's Earth Day (April 21st) and then display it in Ferry Tec.
