Visit of C├ęcile Nyiramana and Exhibition
204, 23 7, 2017

We are delighted to welcome Cécile Nyiramana, Clerk of Rwanda Yearly Meeting, who is visiting us before travelling to Quaker Yearly Meeting Gathering at Warwick University. There will be a chance to meet Cécile and learn about the work of reconciliation and conflict transformation she has led in Rwanda following the devastating violent conflict in her country. All are welcome at a meeting on Friday 28th July at 7.00 pm at Clevedon Friends Meeting House.

Cécile Nyiramana is one of several African Quakers who, working with other churches and voluntary groups, have responded to experience of conflicts and violence in East and Central Africa by active peacebuilding. Some their remarkable work of reconciliation is documented by way of an exhibition entitled 'The light that pushes me'. The exhibition will be on view at Clevedon Friends Meeting House on the 5th, 6th and 7th October 2017 10 am to 4 pm. The exhibition is free and all are welcome.
