Love, Peace and Understanding in a War Zone:
presented by Fred Smith
Songwriter, diplomat, raconteur and author, Fred Smith has worked in conflict zones from Afghanistan to the South Pacific. His work, bridging gaps between cultures through music and laughter, is the subject of several documentaries and finds expression in his acclaimed travelogue albums Dust of Uruzgan and Bagarap Empires.
With the international community challenged beyond capacity by the humanitarian fallout of proliferating civil wars around the globe, Fred's message of understanding offers some possibility of hope.
Share a meal with us, and then listen to Fred Smith as he tells stories and sings his own songs inspired by his time as an Australian diplomat.
