The Posts for Peace and Justice Project

 

We are a collaborative internationally growing project promoting non violence and social justice. Recent sites include: the Carter Center for International Human Rights Forum, Atlanta City Hall Atrium for 1 Billion Rising, and the Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta, and seven schools in California.

 


 

Our Mission:

To support and build individual and community resilience, engagement, compassion, and cohesiveness, through creative, collaborative, inclusive experiences exploring and artfully representing relevant peace & social justice issues.

Using 6-8 foot vinyl posts made in workshops, “posted” in social media, and “hosted” in a variety of physical settings in an effort to raise awareness and stimulate thought and conversation leading to raising consciousness and taking action to resolve injustices.

Using 6-8 foot vinyl posts made in workshops, “posted” in social media, and “hosted” in a variety of physical settings in an effort to raise awareness and stimulate thought and conversation leading to raising consciousness and taking action to resolve injustices.

Posts are generally made as a collaborative effort with everyone adding something to the completion of the post. We encourage diversity in participants to embrace multiple perspectives and greater universal understanding of the issues.

Every post has at least one professional artist who aids in development, design, application, final touches, and relaying principles of effective art techniques and principles.

Posts generally will include powerful, inspirational quotes: informational, eye-opening facts: visual stories: meaningful symbols; hand-prints of those involved in making or supporting the ideas on the post.

Lesson plans, workshop suggestions and templates, and educational videos will be available soon. If you would like to be involved please contact us!
