We believe that art can make peace, and art forms such as drawing and painting grant individuals a canvas upon which to express emotions that they are unable to express with words. Thus, those who are reluctant to verbalise their thoughts and fears can do so through art. Art can act as a non-verbal language that is accessible to all regardless of gender, social standing, political affiliation or religion. We know peace is significantly essential to all communities, so why not “Art for Peace” will not be needed.
