"No speeches, No Preaches"[edit]


The Seattle Peace Concerts started in 1981 and is Seattle's largest and longest running free park concert series. The concerts are non-political and non-religious in nature. Their motto is "no speeches, no preaches". The concerts are held in order to celebrate the peace between us and the oneness of all life. The events are all family friendly, for free and open to the public, thus to ensure that there are no borders and everybody who wants to join can attend. The Seattle Peace Concerts can be seen as an example of cultural diplomacy in practice, as it uses music as a vehicle to create peace. The organiser of these concerts said that humankind is all bound together, all things connect, so we better make the best of it.
