Volunteered with Create Peace Project (CPP) on one of its mural projects at a middle school school in San Francisco. It was truly remarkable to experience the impact CPP has on the kids as well as volunteers. In the spirit of cooperation and collaboration, CPP brings out the best in everybody. We need more NGOs that deliver true life changing impact in the world as Create Peace Project does.
Create Peace Project (CPP) touches the souls of children as well as adults in a real, authentic way. It is an arts for peace organization that has high integrity, gives thanklessly, and provides direct service around the world. I am honored to have an opportunity to be apart of CPP's inner circle. They are an organization you vcan feel good about supporting or volunteering for. Get involved and spread real PEACE!
Create Peace Project unifies and beautifies at the same time, unleashing each student's talent while building the peace building skills of the entire school community. I have watched them take drab school walls and bring student imagination to completely transform the culture of the school. They have exceptional organizational and artistic skills to involve up to 600 students in a project.
I love how Create Peace Project channels the wild enthusiasm of young people into high quality imagery that adds to the possibility of peace in their schools, their community and their world. The programs light up the hope and imagination of students, whether its a one-day creation of peace postcards that are exchanged with young people around the world or a five-month mural project that involves the whole school. This is just what kids need - total engagement, creative collaboration, learning peace practices and purposeful impact.
Create Peace Project fills me with so much joy! I love watching children and adults work together, make art together, have fun and play together. Art making is peace making and that's what I see every time I engage with Create Peace Project. If you feel inspired, you can support us here: www.createpeaceproject.org/donate
I brought my daughter and a friend of hers to join with the Create Peace Project on one of their mural painting projects, where I saw people of all ages and ethnicities working together on an art project in the name of peace. The Create Peace Project has many other ways of getting people to work together, including a peace exchange where kids of the world work send postcards with peace messages to each other. What they are doing is planting the seeds for the next generation to be peaceful as they mature. Plus, they do it in a fun creative way were people really get to use their creative spark (even those of us who barely know how to find ours).
Easily the most on purpose arts organization I have ever had the honor of being a part of. As a volunteer I had an amazing experience creating the richmond mural project. It was an amazing experience will ed with love, community and a deep understanding of how art can affect our lives and be a place of calm and peace. These guys deserve all that s coming to them and big hugs for there passion in community.
