Nepal 2012 Peace Exchange
In 2012, Create Peace Project facilitated three exchanges between North America and schools/NGO’s abroad. We sent about 500 peace cards to Haiti with a group building a children’s center in Jacmel, Haiti. We did another exchange with about 1,200 students from San Francisco and Medellin, Colombia in partnership wtih Mi Sangre Foundation. And we also included more than 5,000 students from 40 schools in the US, Canada, and Nepal in our 3rd Annual Peace Exchange, in which Ross Holzman traveled to Nepal and facilitated workshops in schools of all types in six cities around the country. We are excited by the continued growth of The Peace Exchange and are currently in development of a vision for a documentary film that would follow Create Peace Project around the globe to 20 or more countries, including 10’s of thousands of students in this international arts-for-peace initiative, and sparking a movement of art for peace wherever we go. If you are interested in getting your school or youth organization involved in The Peace Exchange, please be in touch.
