It is About Collaboration and Free Thinking. It is About Empathy, Inclusion and Trust. It is About Creativity. At All Times it is About Creative Problem Solving.

FragilePeace uses the arts to inform and engage communities on issues of social justice, provide students and teachers a means to engage in multicultural and inter-ethnic collaborative art projects, and to inspire people to action. Visual artist and writer Peter Frantz in association with filmmakers, theatrical performers, muralists, photographers, musicians and national and international visuals artists from diverse cultures and ethnic groups, has created an evolving series of art exhibits that among other topics, brings to life the culture, humanity, and hope of the survivors of sexual and domestic violence.

The exhibit and attending curriculum work to expand the worldview of the students, offering contextual discussions and exploring the conditions by which their entry into a global community is inherited.  For example, The Portrait of Panzi exhibition explores the circumstances of Panzi Hospital and the conflict environment of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The exhibition has been seen by thousands of people since first viewed in Marseille, France in 2009.

Our intent is to underscore the similarities of the human condition irrespective of cultural or societal differences, and provide a voice for those whose voices are far too often muted.

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way:

things I had no words for.
