Art For Peace

While looking for some ideas for this month’s Bloggers for Peace Challenge: Art Thou Peaceful I came across the Global Art Project for Peace. “The mission of the Global Art Project is to joyously create a culture of peace through art. The Project celebrates diversity and multi-culturalism while expressing the idea: We Are All One.”

Anyone from any country can participate for a minimal fee or donation. “Participants create a work of art in any medium, expressing their vision of global peace and goodwill. 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 resulting in thousands of people sending messages of Peace around the world at one time—visions of unity simultaneously encircle the Earth.”

The next Global Art Project exchange will be April 2014, so those who are interested have plenty of time.

GAP has another ongoing project called Let’s All Join Hands. “People are invited to send a paper outline of their hand with their name, country, and wish for global peace, love, and friendship on it to the Global Art Project. The hands may be created and sent to GAP at any time. Volunteers in Tucson string the hands together as a visual expression of the thousands of people who join their energy together to create Peace. The paper hands are exhibited as a source of inspiration and a book of paper hands The Handbook for Peace is planned for publication.”

As Kozo so wisely stated: I believe that art has the ability to transform the soul. If art can change a soul, then it can change the world.

    The above peace sign can be found on the following page of my website:

    There is a copyright notice on the page.
    You may use it, but it needs to link to:

    • Thank you! All linked up! This is a very old post, but I think I found the sign on google pics and it did’t have any source link, so you may want to search through google pics to add your link to them somehow. Beautiful art! Namaste _/l\_

    What an amazing idea. I’ve always felt art has the capacity to elevate human consciousness and change the world. It’s like a direct link to our soul. Thanks for sharing Julianne 🙂

  3. As someone who wishes to join the peacecorp one day, this is brilliant!

    I love the ideas of GAP. I’ve never heard of them before, Julianne, thank you for sharing. All these movements are creating ripples that spread and affect the vibration of the entire planet. I am inspired by the global reach of GAP. Maybe we can have a B4Peace/GAP party. {{{hugs]}} Kozo
