Arts & Community Peace Building
Celebrating Our 10th Anniversary
I am deeply grateful for the creative work of my team, the dedication of our board chair and for the wholesome fellowship of the local community members and friends who helped us celebrate 10 years of peace building work.
Our First Out of State Conversations in New Mexico
Heidi travels to New Mexico to visit Tamara, and Julián. Together, we hosted our first out of state community conversation at the Maxwell Museum and a second breakfast conversation in Santa Fe with the dynamic crew from Wise Fools.
Our New Board Chair: Tamara Randall
Tamara Randall, granddaughter of Founder Sami Sunchild and longtime board member, will be stepping up into the role of Board Chair. Tamara’s guidance and leadership have been instrumental for our expansion over the past couple of years. We are immensely grateful to welcome Tamara as our new Board Chair.
Our New Art Program Facilitator
The crisp chill in the air, sends us the signals that autumn has arrived, announcing creative seasonal changes which makes me reflective and curious about the world we live in. With open arms we welcome Julián Antonio Carrillo, our new Art Program Facilitator. Julián attended several of our conversations during our time at the Presidio.
Here at the Peaceful World Foundation, we have been celebrating peace activism through the arts in collaboration with ArtSeed and special guest facilitator, Greta Severson who gave an insightful presentation on the origins of the peace symbol.
Announcing Our 2021 Grantees
We are deeply grateful for the ability to fund the following organizations in their peace building programs as we were unable to do so last year. As with many other non-profit organizations, our grantees have demonstrated innovative teamwork, resilience, and endurance during times of uncertainties.
