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.
The Kansas City Program of the American Friends Service Committee invites school and youth programs working with high school-aged youth to participate in creative projects, which will use the arts to engage youth in issues of war, peace, economic justice and hope for the future.
