Imagine for a moment sitting in a room with daughters and sons of perpetrators and victims of the genocide in Kosovo. Imagine these former enemies — Serbs and Albanians, Roma — joining together to create beautiful art to honor a city they share, and in the process, planting the seeds of enduring peace. Through the work of Cities of Peace, healing, dignity and understanding of seemingly different cultures is possible, reminding us that light and love are always within reach.
See this amazing shift first-hand and be in awe of the healing, dignity and understanding of two seemingly different cultures despite their recent history. When Cities of Peace went to Pristina, Kosovo we only dreamed of making interethnic reconciliation a reality.
Join visionary and inspiring leaders, Dr. Ellen Frank—founder Cities of Peace, an innovative peace and visual arts program that honors the history and culture of world cities that have suffered trauma and strife and multi visual artist, photographer and educator, Luciana McClure— for a conversation on how healing, dignity and understanding of seemingly different cultures is possible.
