Artists 4 Peace is an International project. Artists from all over the world are contributing to the blog and we are truly proving that ART MATTERS.
We want YOU to get involved!
It’s time that we work, not fight, for peace. We have to end the fighting, we have to work for peace. We need new pictures in our heads and around us…we need new stories. New HISTORY books…books without war, without CELEBRATIONS of war, HEROES of war, lies about war, tales written by the victors. We are literally TEACHING children that WAR is a way of life. We NEVER talk about PEACE as a way of life. I’ve said it before…we have a gigantic DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE but we don’t have a Department for Peace. We are taught to believe that war is the answer when, in fact, the answer might be PEACE. Stop studying about war, stop watching the pictures they are putting into our heads. We need to see life from a different perspective. We are being CONDITIONED AND BRAINWASHED into believing that fighting and killing is the only way life can be lived/experienced…but we have never tried peace. I think the time has come. We need to WORK for peace and we need to do it now.
We believe your passion is your Art. So whether your medium is paint, poetry, yarn, music or pottery YOU can be part of the movement.
We are looking for:
- Digital Art
- Music Videos or Audio
- Non Fiction
Seriously, any kind of Art!
Each month a different theme will be the focal point. Submissions due on the 1st of the month…publications on the 15th.
Please take a look at the Submission Guidelines as well as the Monthly Topics & Deadlines and Current Schedule. We also encourage and accept any other Peace related submissions that we will post throughout the month.
We ask that you please put the Artists 4 Peace logo on your blog. It will not only show others you are part of the project, it will allow you instant access to the artists4peace blog. Simply go here for Logos and instructions.
Join us in using our art to promote love, understanding and peace throughout the world.
