FBMI – Afghan Peace Carpets features a selection of large peace-themed carpets created by Afghan women for the social enterprise FBMI (Fatima Bint Mohammed Bin Zayed Initiative), based in the United Arab Emirates. The display offers another perspective on the human experience of war, in a country in which Canadians served and fought from 2001 to 2014 and reflects the experiences of women adapting to life in a conflict zone.
This program was created by FBMI, and is being presented at the Canadian War Museum, in partnership with the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in Ottawa.
