One World, One Hope
“It is called one world one hope,” he said pointing to the painting I was admiring.
We had just moved to Vancouver and we were out and about, shopping for furnishings. We stopped at a little art and framing shop hoping to pick up some hanging hooks when I first saw it.
One World, One Hope, I repeated to myself.
I like it no I love it. The painting looks like stained glass, and I can see my face in it as well as the faces of so many others. Its name speaks to me we have one hope a hope for a cure.
This painting speaks to me the, me living with type 1 diabetes and I see in it the collective us all living with diabetes and with one hope.
Hope for a cure.
It was one of a numbered and signed edition, the last one the store had. We bought it not knowing much about the painting or the artist.
We later found out that the One World, One Hope image was used as Canada’s first AIDS awareness poster, for the XI international AIDS Conference in Vancouver in 1996.
