HANDS OF PEACE
BaredFeet, Co. brings you “Hands of Peace” a youth-empowered, charitable program on the topic of peace – allowing children to deliver the message of being peaceful to our community through the power of visual and performing arts.
REGISTER FOR 2023 Hands of Peace!
Since 2015, every two years (odd-numbered years) youth work for 4-8 weeks on projects in various art forms which are presented to the public in a culminating free performance production. The production is comprised of youth dances, youth choirs, youth drama team, youth art and youth poetry. Mini-versions of the program have been offered to select groups both virtually and in person. CV Montessori’s (a common partner) vision is to develop independent, passionate learners who understand the responsibility each of us has as citizens of our world. BaredFeet’s mission is to provide free, basic, holistic, quality wellness education and advocate for the arts as a crucial wellness tool.
Stay tuned to this page and the Facebook page, for updates.
