Peace Through the Arts
Art is a powerful medium to communicate the theme of peace where people do not share a common language. Focusing on dance, song and performance, Peace Boat's arts team comprises participants who devote much of their time onboard and in port to practicing a variety of performances that often convey messages with themes of unity and peace, both for and with their local audiences. Projects to date have included performances on the "UNESCO Manifesto 2000" pledges and the Millennium Development Goals.
