This 37mm circular lapel badge shows the logo and name of Coventry Lord Mayor's Committee for Peace and Reconciliation.
The price includes shipping within the UK.
The logo was selected from entries to a competition held in 2018. It was created by Andrea Mbarushimana.
Andrea is a community worker for Grapevine Coventry and Warwickshire, and a freelance artist and writer living in Coventry. “I have worked for peace in the community for more than a decade,” Andrea said, “running exhibitions, performances of the spoken word and events around social justice and promoting multi-culturalism, so winning this competition for the Lord Mayor’s Committee means a lot to me.” A long-time supporter of the Coventry Peace Festival, Andrea is also a Culture Rep for Coventry 2021, City of Culture.
Andrea receives her prize for winning the logo competition
Presenting Andrea with her cheque, the Chair of the Committee Philip Brown said “I am sure that the recognition that your logo will bring to this Committee will help us not only to promote our existing work but to engage new audiences, especially young people, their parents and teachers with the vitally important topics of peace, justice and reconciliation.”
Andrea's other work is showcased at www.andrea-mbarushimana.com and her book ‘The Africa in My House’ is available from Silhouette Press.
