Christian Brun

Christian travelled to Mozambique to work with a team of Canadian and Irish volunteers on a unique community-based disarmament project. After the country’s civil war, thousands of guns, grenades and landmines remained a threat to the fragile peace. Together, the volunteers converted these decommissioned arms into creative sculptures that promote healing and reconciliation. The resulting exhibit toured Canada in the 1990s.


As well as the artistic endeavour, Christian’s placement involved  community development, HIV/AIDS prevention and education in Mozambique.
