Working for Peace through the Arts
Working towards contributing to a more educated, aware and conscious society has been the life's work of Leonie Ebert. Her focus has been on equality for women, equal education opportunities, cultural issues, refugees and Indigenous people. As a teacher and principal, she was also the first woman chair of the Australian National Curriculum Studies Association and the South Australian Institute of Teachers, and a UNESCO Education Commissioner. Leonie has dedicated her life to the welfare and success of not only students but also to teachers and their communities. In 1989, Leonie established the Graham F. Smith Peace Foundation, which aims to promote peace and harmony in the community through programs involving artists and arts organisations.
As an Adelaide City Councillor (1997-1998) she initiated the Youth Ambassadors Program which is still operating today.
A passionate hard-working woman, Leonie is an outstanding role model.
In 2017, the Foundation was awarded the Governor’s Multicultural Award for support of social justice and social change by fostering projects across the artistic spectrum illuminating topics such as reconciliation and the legacy of the atomic age.
