CITIES OF PEACE

Harnesses the transformative power of art to celebrate the rich cultural heritage of world cities to foster beauty, understanding and peace.

PEACE EDUCATION

A critical part of our mission is to foster global peace. The curriculum at EFIAF’s Peace Education uses the visual arts and an interdisciplinary approach to build global understanding. It teaches leadership and cultural diplomacy and provides concepts, language and experience to counter all forms of intolerance and develop a capacity for conflict resolution, reconciliation, and community building.
