Her Excellency, Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, the President of Malta in her keynote speech said:

“The ‘Art of Peace’ exhibition opens a window into the powerful possibility of change in our world, adding that it reminds us that there is a credible alternative to the rhetoric of suspicion and division which, unfortunately, is becoming louder across many of our nations. It also reminds us that we can free ourselves from narratives of destruction and isolation, and replace them with narratives of inclusion and participation.”
