The project Living Peace is a universal proposal open to everyone – children, adolescents, young people and adults – from different cultures and religions.

PEAC provides a platform for those whose voices have been silenced. Art is our preferred medium of communication. We believe it is the only universal language and the only way to reach people from all nations! Right now we are championing the Hibakusha Rebellion representing the survivors of the atomic bombings. The Hibakusha Rebellion wants to build a coalition of those at the forefront of Nuclear Abolition and Climate Change. Our newest project, Youth Empowerment to Prevent Extinction, is the embodiment of this idea.
