In celebration of Canada’s 150th Birthday (July 1, 2017), over 200 Canadian and International youth came together to create a message of peace and diversity by painting the flags of the world on their faces. The result is an inspiring 60-second online video, released today on Youtube. Using makeup as their medium, these creative young people aim to inspire mutual understanding and love, worldwide.
Over the span of a year and with the help of the faculty and staff at CMU College of Makeup Art & Design, this student created Peace Flag project came to life. Pamela Earle, CMU College President who spearheaded the project said today, “This video was originally inspired out of sympathy, in solidarity with the victims of tragic worldwide events, but it quickly morphed into a message of hope. We can’t think of a better way to mark Canada’s 150th birthday than to share this powerful message and project created by CMU students with the world.”
