Art and dialogue are powerful mediums that can transform hearts and minds, even those of supposed enemies. Creativity for Peace uses art to give young Israeli and Palestinian women a language to communicate their shared fears, pain and begin healing and peace-building.
Israeli Mai Shbeta, Palestinian Jwana Ghaleb and Israeli Shirit Milikovski are senior leaders with Creativity for Peace, a New Mexico nonprofit with operations in Israel and Palestine. They explore the transformations that they have undergone in the years they have been involved with the organization, their ongoing struggles with and passion for peace-building and their dreams for a future of peaceful coexistence between Israelis and Palestinians. Creativity for Peace executive director Dottie Indyke joins them.
A reception on the plaza follows the program.
