We believe that art and stories shape the world we live in. Many of the stories being told today are furthering divides and harming our collective ability to find common cause. We want to encourage artists and journalists to think of their work as a vocation, meant not merely to express whatever inner sorrow or outrage they may be feeling, but to understand that even in the darkness there should always be the intention to create work that supports recovery, renewal, and a sense of hope.
We exist as a Studio – as content creators, educators,
and conveners. Our aim is to equip artists, journalists,
and thought-leaders with the opportunities and strengths-based tools needed to restore hope, challenge injustice, and bridge divides. We also encourage reflective practices, gather in local groups, hold an annual summit, create engaging social media campaigns, and offer support training, micro-grants, awards, and fellowships.
Developing and amplifying the voices of artists and journalists to foster a culture of peace.
THE PEACE STUDIO IMPACT CIRCLE
Join the community of outstanding business leaders, award-winning journalists, prominent artists and more who annually contribute $1,000 or more to amplify our impact.
THE PEACE STUDIO SUMMIT
In commemoration of the UN International Day of Peace, September 21, this exciting annual event provides a forum for extraordinary activists, thought-leaders and internationally acclaimed artists and journalists to connect and inspire people the world over to pursue peace.
SOCIAL IMPACT CAMPAIGNS
At The Peace Studio, we believe that peace is about the small, daily actions we choose to take to show compassion, kindness and love towards others. It’s about pursuing justice, advocating for equality and human rights, and helping those facing hardship, oppression or other adversity. In our campaigns, it’s all about making that choice to #OfferPeace.
ARTS & JOURNALISM FELLOWSHIPS
A new program launching in 2022 to engage mid-career artist and journalist leaders in bridge-building work in their local communities.
A chance for high-school, college and post-college aged artists and journalists to learn more about our work, engage with our peacebuilding and strengths-based storytelling curricula, build a community of like-minded peers, and receive a micro-grant to further their work.
