NOW OPEN!!! The Peace Project’s 5th annual Call-for-Artists
Asking artists worldwide to show us where Peace starts. Is Peace born out of love, community, in the innocence of a child or the beauty of nature? How can we end the senseless war and embrace equality for all?
In four short years, The Peace Project, supported by artists and others, has:
Educated dozens of children in Sierra Leone, Africa.
Distributed 10,000 pairs of crutches to amputees, war victims, polio survivors and mothers and children in Sierra Leone on World Peace Day, 2011.
Designed a Peace Museum in Sierra Leone in conjunction with the United Nations.
Created and produced Peace Tips, specially designed crutch tips that last one year, extend the life of crutches and greatly improve mobility for users.
And currently, we’re building 40 houses and a community center in the Philippines for victims of Typhoon Haiyan. A total of 200 are planned.
