Everyone is important – all are equivalent.

Blauschaf Friedensherde

The Blue Shepherd is a global social art project by the artist Bertamaria Reetz, a symbol of mutual tolerance and peace. The authorized copies of the works are end-processed in cooperation with the non-profit workspace for people with disabilities of the social enterprises Cologne gGmbH in Cologne. This cooperation has played a significant role in the peace message.

The initiator of the convent Metelen Ingrid Hagen has now brought a peace herd with Blauschaf lambs to Metelen. For this she has been able to win over 150 godparents, who have their pastel pots grazed on the meadow of the St. Sophia House from 22 March to Easter Monday (17 April 2017). Whoever strolls along the river during this time can enjoy the ultramarin blue peace herd as a work of art.

From now on the blue peace lamb herd are allowed to leave the pasture at 10 o’clock every morning and gathered again at 7 pm. Anyone who wants to help with the herd raising can be in time in front of the entrance of the St.Sophienhaus.

On Easter Monday the lambs will be handed over to their godparents with a music program, which I will open with a sound performance for alphorn & live electronics. Further information about the Münsterländer Friedensherde can be found on the Internet pages of the Metelen Monastery.

The WDR has sent a small article about the project in the “Lokalzeit Münsterland” (From minute 15:19 – available until 29.3.2017)
