The Art and Talent Show for Peace is an annual event which takes place in February or March of each year. The goal of the show is not only to showcase the talents of our youth, but also to encourage them to think about peace and how we can achieve it. Since its inception in 2012, the Art and Talent Show for Peace has reached over 300 youth and their families. The show is non-competitive in order to show the youth of our community the impact of working together for peace. Each youth receives a stipend for their art or talent. Each piece is evaluated by an art or talent coach/mentor who gives positive and encouraging critique.
