Photo Highlights from the Opening of "Why Peace?" Children's Art Exhibit

Ingrid Hess is a design professor at the University of Massachusetts in Lowell. Her scholarship focuses on issues related to peace and economic justice.

Ingrid writes: "I believe that one of the most successful ways we can affect change is through educating children. By teaching the young that they can be peacemakers we change both the present and the future. My current series of work is titled, Why Peace?  Each image showcases one example of why we need peace. An accompanying label provides a simple suggestion of an activity a person can do to promote peace in this area. All of the suggested activities can easily be accomplished by young children. "
“Peace heroes practice peace leadership, but what is peace leadership? Just as soldiers are trained to wage war, how much further could humanity progress if citizens were trained to wage peace?”
