This year’s Visions of Peace at the Crossroads Festival was another rousing success. The Festival took place on June 7th, the first Friday of the month. First Friday is the time for the monthly art walk in The Crossroads District, and attendees of the Festival were a healthy mixture of peace activists and art enthusiasts who just happened upon the event.
Meeting participants will help organize the Visions of Peace at the Crossroads Peace Festival to take place on the First Friday in October, 2011. Last year’s Festival was filled with mural making, peace parades, video interviews, music, poetry, storytelling and much more. This meeting will be our first planning meeting so join us and help shape a power peacemaking event.
