WHAT THE PEACE STUDIO DOES
The Peace Studio develops artists and journalists to inspire hope and catalyze transformative social change. We believe storytellers to be best positioned to respond to our world of violence. Peace relies on individuals coming together across difference to do the ongoing work of conflict transformation – moving from the destructive to the constructive. Culture brings us together as a society and it is the stories we tell that shape our culture.
Through The Peace Studio Fellowship, Artist as Catalyst, and The Peace Studio Summit, we give artists and journalists the tools to transform conflict in the U.S. Tools such as: restorative storytelling, mindfulness & meditation, self-efficacy, and mediation.
