Art of Peace

GATC’s ongoing array of Art of Peace programs benefitting Chicago Public School students and others in the US include:

  • Magic Carpet, a year-long, musical-theater diversity education program exploring personal and cultural identity through narration, script writing and performance.
    • Nine metrics were tracked with 100% success rates.
  • Choice and Consequence engaged CPS students in re-writing the soliloquies of King Lear and exploring how differing character choices alter ultimate outcomes.
  • Tapestry of Story & Sound, a GATC creation commissioned by the Chicago Children’s Humanities Festival, paired ethnic storytelling and music to promote cultural understanding. (Remount 2014)
