Tolerance workshop at "June Art Home" in Phitsanulok, Thailand

On January 21st, June Art Home's students, aged 16-18, were invited to create their own Tolerance posters. Since there is no direct translation for the word tolerance in the Thai language, the students of June Art Home found their own replacement for that word. They designed their Tolerance posters based on them. To be inspired in their creation, the students were surrounded by the official Tolerance posters created by professional artists. At the end of the workshop, the students' Tolerance posters were on display alongside the official Tolerance Poster Show. The event also included movie screenings and students reading stories.

The founder of June Art Home, Chitlada Wiriyaprasit - June, hopes that after this experience, the students can be inspired to develop their artistic skills and social responsibilities.

2nd Tolerance Posters Show in Zagreb, Croatia

On November 16th, the International Day of Tolerance , the Tolerance Poster Show was displayed in the center of Zagreb on the fence of the Botanical Garden . Here is a link to a short video of the show . Unfortunately only 24 hours later, the show was "attacked" by Neo-Nazis graffitis. On the posters, they wrote "NDH", which is the abbreviation for Nezavisna Država Hrvatska (Independent State of Croatia) a Second World War puppet state of Nazi Germany. On others, they graffitied the letter "U" which is the symbol for Ustaša the Second World War Croatian fascist organization. And they even wrote "Smrt Srbozločincima" (Death to the Serbian criminals). Luckily, the organizers of the show figured out how to remove this hate speech and the symbols. Outrage over this vandalism, was expressed through all news media in Croatia. Here , here , here , and here are some of the local media reactions. You can see the video of the show here . This show
