Mission: To build peace through culture

Goal: To connect individuals and organizations across cultures, including public and private sectors, work disciplines and nationalities, with each other, and with the needed resources to create and facilitate ongoing and innovative efforts in the peacebuilding field.

Vision: Cross-cultural interactions are being fostered by technology, travel, and commerce at a rate unprecedented in all of human history. Not only ethnic, religious, and national cultures, but also public, private, and civil society cultures must reconcile with how they will converge.  The choice is clear, cross-cultural interaction can start from a point of fear of the other and hatred or may begin with peaceful steps.  Peacebuilding connections will strive to create and help foster as many peaceful cross-cultural connections as possible through the arts.
