Peace and its many aspects

The Global Art Project for Peace

There are so many “gems” among the links you find on the Dayton Peace Museum page.  For instance, check out The Global Art Project .

“The mission of the Global Art Project (GAP) is to spread world peace by promoting tolerance and non-violence through art. The Project expresses the idea: We Are All One. People of all ages and from all around the world who choose to participate each create a work of art expressing their vision of global unity. The art is displayed locally in each participant’s community. Global Art Project then organizes an international exchange by matching participants group-to-group and individual-to-individual.”

There is a nice video that explains how the founder, Katherine Joston, got started.   She really started from square one.  Since she started, in 1994, there have been 90,000 participants from seven contients.

Once again, we see that the arts are a very effective way to promote peace, and that peace is really what people everywhere want.  It is really that simple.
