"A Peace of My Mind" Exhibition

Event Type: MAIN - EXHIBIT
Date: 5/10/2014
Start Time: All Day
 A Peace of My Mind began out of the belief that if a single voice can make a small difference, then together, many voices can make a tremendous impact.

In early 2009, photographer John Noltner began interviewing people about their thoughts on peace. The interviews were recorded digitally and combined with a B&W portrait.

The goal is to create a collection of thoughts on peace from people with a wide range of backgrounds and experiences and to use that collection of interviews to foster a larger public conversation on the subject.

The project is based on the premise that we all have important thoughts to share. We all have a view of peace that is very personal - whether that means political peace, spiritual peace, inner peace or something entirely unexpected. And the belief is that at the core, we are all the same - we all long for and dream for the same things.

So the hope is that through conversation, we will begin to understand each other a little better. By sharing, we will create a sense of community, and in our own way, make a stand for peace - in our own lives, in our communities, and in the world that we share.
