Aug 14 – Aug 16, 2015 Fri 7:00 PM – Sun 4:00 PM $385.00
Advocating for peace in our families, communities and world begins with the search for peace within. Using the tools of the creative arts (writing, painting, collaging or whichever medium you discover), this workshop will give you the confidence to own your creative power and potential, and to discover how this relates to building cultures of peace. Through art, self and group reflection, we will explore our personal states of peace, and explore how our inner peace can  manifests in our communities and in the world. The workshop will include the communal creation of a piece of art that will remain at the Centre, as an ongoing testament to the power of art to transform ourselves and the world.

Absolutely no previous experience is necessary, and building a safe, positive space is at the heart of the workshop.

Program Cost: $385 (tuition, meals & accommodation)
