We launch officially April 15th. Our temp blog is at http://www.visualpeacemakers.org
We are visual communicators devoted to peacemaking and breaking down stereotypes by displaying the beauty and dignity of various cultures around the world.
As humans we often fall into the trap of making enemies with, stereotyping, and fighting the “other.” More recently, this has been fueled by the growing availability of technology. Movements/Media exist for “shock” stories and ones related to “the trials of the human condition.” IGVP takes a 3rd path, namely, building bridges of peace thru our common humanity.
The visual peacemaking movement is open thru membership to the Visual Peacemakers Community, (VPC). Guild membership is exclusive. Guild members collaborate with the Founders to provide thought leadership, mentoring, and workshops.
Visualpeacemakers.org will have visual galleries, documentaries, photo stories, and a ‘house’ social network for vp'ers to create, connect, and catalyze.
All Visual Peacemakers are joined by a unique Ethical Code. They have also issued the Charter for Visual Peace which affirms every human beings’ responsibility to be a socially conscious consumer of visual content.
