Mission and Goals
The mission of Children's Peace Theatre is to create a culture of peace by engaging children and youth in the practice of theatre and art.
How Your Contribution Helps
By working and playing together in creating theatre, participants learn to transform conflict with creativity, courage, and compassion. The proven magic of theatre is that it helps us see into the deepest issues of our own reality precisely by taking us out of that reality and into a place of suspended belief and heightened imagination.
They (Children’s Peace Theatre) are building the foundation for a better community and for peace, one young person at a time. We have both been changed by being here. Our lives in this community are complicated and sometimes difficult. Children’s Peace Theatre, this organization and this place have become ours and the experience we have had here will stay with us for the rest of our lives.
