Art of Peace Imagine In Action
The Peace Chair Project was co-founded by artist Catalina McIsaac, teacher Laurie Wright, and graphic artist Erica Holten. Catallna, who, in her own words, "was frustrated with the way the world handles conflict." has developed a virtual peace curriculum, working with Central Coast schools to foster an environment of understanding, acceptance, and respect. In this film, the Los Prietos Boys Camp (a Santa Barbara county correctional institution for youth) created and presented several "Peace Chairs" to Mary Buren elementary school. The students delighted in the creative gifts, but more importantly, accepted them as symbols of an alternative, thoughtful approach to dealing with conflict and frustration. This is a trailer for the documentary film, "Art of Peace Imagine".
